Prep Time 5minutes
Pickling Time 30minutes
1Lebanese or English cucumber These ones are Lebanese
Slice cucumber to desired thickness. I feel 1/8 - 1/4 inch (approx 1/2 cm) is about right for me.
Stir together vinegar, salt & sugar until dissolved.
Add cucumbers, cover and leave for minimum 30 mins before using.
Store in the fridge.
mandoline - a sharp knife will do the trick
measuring jug & spoon
stirring spoon - tblspoon works just fine
using a mandoline is quicker and gets even slices BUT if you don't own one then just use a sharp knife
if you don't eat the pickles right away store them in the fridge but they do lose colour and texture quite quickly as we are cutting them quite thin. If you cut them thicker then they will last longer!
this quick pickle recipe will work with any veg so don't limit yourself to cucumbers
