I like pickles. I like cucumbers and I like putting something together at the last minute. Behold the last minute pickles. No they aren’t as delicious as proper fermented pickles but they are salty, sweet but still retain a heap of crunch and fresh flavour. They’re pretty much good on anything… and you can make them in under two hours.
Also you can scale this recipe up if you need more curing liquid.
Small cucumbers (like as many as you want).
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup salt
1 cup hot water
2 cups white vinegar
1. Combine the sugar, salt and hot water and mix until dissolved.
3. Add the washed and sliced cucumbers
4. Set aside for two hours (or longer.. or whatever)
5. Serve with whatever you want but I can’t go past twice cooked duck with soft milk buns and chilli.
