Spicy pickled cucumbers
2 medium sized cucumbers
1 tablespoon salt
1 cup white wine vinegar
1 small fresh Red chilli, finely chopped
1 teaspoon turmeric
3 cloves garlic, crushed
1 teaspoon fennel seeds
85 grams sugar
Thinly slice the unpeeled cucumbers. Put these in a bowl with sliced onion. Sprinkle with salt, cover with water and leave to stand overnight.
Drain well the following day.
Combine the rest of the ingredients in a pan and bring to the boil.
Remove from the heat, stand for 5 minutes, then bring to the boil again. Now add the cucumbers and onion, turning gently to coat, cover, and cook gently for 5 minutes.
Let stand to cool, then bottle and seal.
This is a CWA recipe which I have made a few times when cucumbers are plentiful. It is delicious with cold meats, hamburgers, sandwiches and lots of other food. Hopefully you will enjoy it as much as I do.
