Preserving Food - Pickled Cucumbers

Preserving food is a great way to limit food waste, especially if you grow vegetables and have too many to eat over the summer. Pickling vegetables gives them a long shelf life. I have loads of cucumber at the moment so I thought I'd share the recipe I use. You can pickle most vegetables though and it's great fun. The recipe I use is very basic so feel free to experiment with different herbs and spices. Recipe: 1 jar of pickled cucumber 1 jar with lid. About 3 cups or 750mls jar. Enough cucumber to fill 1 jar. I used one cucumber per jar. 1/2 lemon juiced 1/2 tsp salt, I used pink himalayan salt 1 tsp sugar (optional) I used coconut sugar Apple cider vinegar Water Herbs like coriander or par
