So, having tasted pickled cucumber before and finding it rather nice, I decided to have a go myself.
So I used good old Google and found you could get all ready spiced vinegar. Wonderful.
So off I popped to Tesco and did indeed find some ready spiced vinegar, which came in a jar suitable for pickling 2lb of winter veg as well, bargin.
Saved jars and sliced cucumber
Cucumber previously being soaked overnight, I think I might have overdone it on the amount of salt I bought, enough to last a life time there.
The finished result, I expect it will still be as nice without the fancy gingham covers.
