Pickled Cucumbers

20 MIN
Six 250 ml (1 cup) 




  1. In a bowl, combine the cucumber slices with the salt. Cover with water. Cover with plastic wrap and let stand at room temperature for 8 hours. Rinse the cucumber slices under cold water. Drain. Spoon into sterilized jars.
  2. In a saucepan, bring the remaining ingredients to a boil. Remove from the heat and pour over the cucumbers.
  3. Keep the jars in the refrigerator or sterilized in boiling water for 15 minutes to store the jars for up to 1 year in a cool, dry place.


You can cut the cucumbers into thinner or thicker slices, as desired. My wife and my mother-in-law prefer the thicker slices, while I love them very thin, to garnish sandwiches or burgers. To each his own!


  1. Can I cut down on sugar to 1/4 or 1/2 cup? I have much difficulty with sweet both for taste and health
