Home Made Sweet & Sour Sandwich Pickles
Fermented food are really good for you, and if you can find a delicious, inexpensive way to enjoy them, why not? Here is a simple recipe for cucumber pickles that taste amazing just with bread; on an open sandwich; in stroganoff (that recipe is coming up soon) and in burgers! This, along with my wholegrain mustard, is a sure shot way to win at the burger game any time!
For cucumber base
2 cups sliced cucumber (leave the skin on)
1 mild fresh chili sliced thin (red if you have it)
½ a small onion (sliced thin) you can leave this out if you prefer
2-3 Tablespoons of salt
For Pickling Liquid
¼ cup sugar
1-2 cloves garlic, finely sliced
1-2 cloves, crushed
½ tsp yellow mustard seeds
1/3 tsp ajwain
1/3 tsp turmeric
¼ cup white vinegar and about
½ cup water
Place the cucumber slices, chili and onion in a clean glass container. Add the salt. Cover and chill for 4 hrs.
Remove after 4 hrs and rinse thoroughly to remove excess salt. The cucumbers should have become a bit limp at this stage.
In a saucepan, place all the ingredients for the pickling liquid. Turn on the heat and make it warm.
Add the washed and drained cucumbers and bring it up to the boil. Just to heat, do not boil it.
Turn off the flame, and let the cumbers rest in the liquid till cool.
Bottle in a clean dry jar, and enjoy!
These are excellent in Sandwiches, burgers, in a pita with falafels or shawarma, or just plain!
Do try them and leave me a comment, I would love to hear from you!
