    French Tart's Note:

    This should be called Mum's quick pickled cucumber and onion, as this is what she made EVERY Sunday afternoon for tea-time! We always had this alongside fresh bread and butter, boiled eggs, cold cuts of meat, fruit cake, scones, sometimes a tin of red salmon and always a pot of tea! Wonderful memories, and an easy and tasty pickle for tea-time food. This is also wonderful with picnic food, smoked salmon or an assorted cheese board.

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Use a fork to run through the surface of the cucumber, vertically downwards, to obtain a fluted pattern when sliced.
    2. 2
      Cut cucumber into thin slices and put into a large bowl, sprinkle with salt and mix well. Leave the cucumber for 10 minutes to absorb the salt then rinse with cold water. Drain off excess liquid in a colander. Return cucumber to the large bowl and add the sliced onions.
    3. 3
      Combine sugar and vinegar together. Add to cucumber and onion slices and mix well.
    4. 4
      Decant into a plastic container, and refrigerate overnight or for a few hours before serving.
    5. 5
      Garnish with mint or parsley.
    6. 6
      Keeps in the fridge for a week.

      Loved these! The malt vinegar added a different flavor than the vinegars I'm used to using. They were just a bit too sweet for my taste (although that could be due to a conversion error--I used 1/3 cup). They had a lovely, fresh flavor even after only 3 hours in the fridge. Thanks so much for sharing, FT! Made for the French Tart Cookathon in the Everyday is a Holiday tag game.

      I didn't know that it was possible to make pickles that tasted great so soon after making! I used cider vinegar and omitted the onions. We found these to be quite tasty and I'm sure I will keep these in the fridge once our cucumbers start coming in!
