Cucumber Pickle

I make cucumber pickle many times throughout the year but it’s made in my house every few weeks during summer. It’s always one I make and hand out to friends and family, they love it! This year I started to experiment with new pickling spice and after many tests and feedback, this is the one that everyone loved.



  • 900g thinly sliced unpeeled cucumber ( I use my processor with the slicing blade for this)
  • 3 small onions thinly sliced
  • 300g sugar
  • 1 tablespoon sea salt
  • 250ml cider vinegar
  • 1 tsp coriander seed
  • 2 tsp yellow mustard seed
  • 1 tsp peppercorn
  • 1 tsp ground turmeric
  • small bunch of fresh dill (You can also use dried dill)



  1. In a large bowl mix all the ingredients well.
  2. Keep covered for a few hours mixing every so often. 
  3. Prepare jars, make sure they have been cleaned fully. You can use your dishwasher for this. They do not need to be sterilised in the oven. 
  4. Fill the jars leaving a cm or two to put in the juices at the end! 
  5. I got 6 300ml jars out of this.
  6. Put into the fridge, best made a good few hours in advance or the day before.
  7. This will keep for or up to a week in the refrigerator.
