Pickled Cucumbers  ( family recipe adapted for Thermomix)

  • 1 telegraph cucumber or two small cucumber,
  • 1 tbsp coarse sea salt
  • 1½ cups water (330g)
  • ½ cup white wine vinegar (120g)
  • 3/4 cup sugar (155g )
  1.  Thinly slice (leave skin on) the cucumber – a mandoline is perfect. This should yield about four cups of thinly sliced cucumber ( I peeled the cucumbers above because these were normal cucumbers not telegraph)
  2. Place the cucumber in a colander. Sprinkle over the salt and leave for 30 minutes.
  3.  In TM bowl, combine the water, vinegar, sugar, and bring to the boil. 8 mins. 100c, speed 2. Remove from the heat and leave to cool.
  4.  Rinse the salt from the cucumbers and, using your hands, squeeze out as much moisture as you can.
  5.  Place the cucumbers in a large jar and pour the pickling liquid over them. Cover with a tight-fitting lid and refrigerate for at least three hours before using.
