A slice of pickled cucumber can really add that missing freshness to salads or sandwiches. Store bought ones will do the trick, but nothing is as tasty as the ones you make yourself. the quick pickle method helps you to do this in minutes instead of overnight.
The quickest way to make a really good pickled cucumber is by using a vacuum container. The brine gets absorbed a lot quicker while the cucumber slices still retain their bite.
Recipe for pickled cucumber
A simple brine would look like this:
1 cup of water
1 cup of vinegar
1/4 cup of sugar
2 teaspoons of salt
Use the Vacuvita container for quick pickling
You can add extra flavors by adding some mustard seeds, ginger or dill. Feel free to experiment!
Just mix the ingredients together and place it in a Vacuvita container together with finely sliced cucumber. Apply vacuum and store in the fridge for at least 20 minutes before serving.
This also works with other veggies like carrots and hot peppers and can be a great way to serve leftovers in a new and exciting way.
