How To Make pickled cucumbers

  • 1
    Wash the cucumbers and dry well. Thinly slice and layer in a clean dry 3 litre - 12 cup jar alternately with the dill and pepper corns.

    Combine the water, vinegar and salt in a medium saucepan. Bring to the boil over a medium high heat, then carefully pour the hot liquid over the cucumbers in the jar. Seal the jar immediately. Set aside for at least one week to pickle before serving.

    Store at room temp before opening. If you like you can put chilli in as well, I got two small red chillies and cut them in half, layered three of them in the jar and boiled the other piece in the liquid before pouring onto cucumbers. Enjoy.
