A friend of mine gave me a bunch of cucumbers from her garden, so I made these quick pickles.
This is not really a "recipe" because you can use whatever spices you like and add other veggies you have on hand. I kept it simple. I use regular old white vinegar (that I buy in a gallon jug) and just a pinch of stevia for sweetness.
The most important thing you need to do for the recipe is sterilize your jar. All I do is place it in my sink and pour boiling water into the jar until it overflows... take a pot holder and pour the water out and you're good to go!
Simple Spiced Pickles
1 1/2 English Cucumbers, sliced into half moons
1/2 white onion, sliced into half moons
Hefty pinch sea salt (around 1 teaspoon)
1 teaspoon coriander seeds
1 teaspoon mustard seeds
1 teaspoon dry dill
1/2 teaspoon peppercorns
pinch crushed red pepper flakes
Pinch stevia or 2 tablespoons sugar
White distilled vinegar
With impeccably clean hands, pack the cucumbers and onions into a quart sized glass jar
Add the salt, spices and stevia
Cover with white vinegar
Cover jar and chill overnight
I've been eating these mixed into everything! They were especially good in the salad I had for lunch!
