Pickling is a great way to preserve food especially when it is fresh and straight out of the garden. The other day our family friend kindly brought us a few kilos of cucumbers from the markets. They were plump, juicy and all different shapes- which is wonderful to see these days! Keep them in brine for at least a month and enjoy them in a sandwich, burger, salad or on their own!
