Perfecting Pickle and other Alliterations

Perfect pickled cucumber


Perfecting Pickle and other Alliterations

On a recent rainy trip to Chester Zoo, we had the ‘pleasure’ of eating in the restaurant there. Despite the chaotic surroundings and dubious looking burgers, they were served with the most delicious pickled cucumber.

In our house, Maisy and I are the only people who eat cucumber and so they tend to fester in a corner of the salad drawer until they ooze slime – nice.

So, I have decided it’s now
my mission to perfect pickled
cucumber….here we go!

Cucumber 1
Sea salt 2 tbsp
Sugar 2 tbsp
Rice vinegar 2 tbsp
Finely chopped stem ginger 1 tbsp

  1. Make pretty grooves down the edges of the cucumber with a fork and then cut into thin slices.
  2. Place a colander over a bowl and then pop the cucumber in the colander with the salt. Mix together and leave to stand for 2 hours.
  3. Rinse and drain the cucumber. In jar mix together the sugar, vinegar and stem ginger. Add the cucumber and mix well. Pop a lid on the jar (or it will taint other items in your fridge) and refrigerate. Enjoy with homemade burgers or hot dogs.
