Title: Bread and Butter Pickle
Post by: djinni373 on November 15, 2016, 10:11:24 am
from Womens Weekly Preserves

I'm not a fan of cucumber but I do love this pickle, especially with nibbles or a salad.

3-4 (500g) Lebanese cucumbers thinly sliced
1 large brown onion thinly sliced (about 200g)
1/4 C (70g) coarse cooking salt
1 C (250ml) white vinegar or ACV
1 C (220g) white sugar
2 t mustard seeds
1/2 t dried chilli flakes
1/4 t ground turmeric

1 Night before: Combine cucumber and onion in non-metallic bowl, sprinkle with salt. Mix well, cover and stand overnight.
2 Next morning: Rinse and drain cucumber mix, and spoon in sterilised jars.
3 While cucumber is draining, put rest of ingredients in tmx and cook about 2 minutes/Varoma/speed 2. Mix should have just boiled.
4 Pour over cucumber, mix and seal and label jars.
Store in cool dark place for 3 weeks before opening. Store in fridge after opening.
Serve on hamburgers, sandwiches, in salads or with cheese and crackers.

Notes
I only use a few dried chilli flakes (I donít like ďheatĒ much) and add a little extra tumeric.
Use a mandolin to slice the cucumber and onion.
Add some finely sliced red capsicum for extra colour.

These sound perfect for us. I was just telling DH and he said we were to make some. He wants to put some dill in too.
