How to Cook Pickled Cucumber

  1. Either wash the cucumber well or peel it. Pull a fork through the surface of the cucumber, vertically downwards, to obtain a fluted pattern when sliced.
  2. Cut the cucumber into thin slices and place in a large bowl. Sprinkle generously with salt and mix well. Leave the cucumber for 10-15 minutes to absorb the salt then rinse with cold water. Drain off any excess liquid using a sieve (strainer) or colander. Return the cucumber to the large bowl.
  3. Meanwhile, while the cucumber is absorbing the salt, peel and grate (shred) the fresh root ginger and cut the stem ginger into thin slices. When the cucumber is ready, combine the sugar, the vinegar and the two types of ginger together with the cucumber slices and mix well. Place the whole mix into a plastic container and refrigerate overnight or for a few hours before serving.

A few slices of Pickled Cucumber are a great addition to a Ploughman's Lunch

Reviews of Pickled Cucumber

Rating 4 out of 5 - Many cooks will make this recipe again September 07 2014
I have so many cucumbers, I can't give them away to any more people I know, nor eat them fast enough. If I could freeze cucumbers, I would, but you can't...so this recipe allowed me to zip thru the slicing of many cucumbers (used blade on food processor) and adding the few simple ingredients in the right proportions. I added parsley, and I think mint would work nicely too. A guilt-free side dish too.
