DIRECTIONS

  • Wash and prick the cucumbers with a silver fork.
  • put a layer into a plastic bowl, then sprinkle with salt until all are covered with salt.
  • (leave for approx 4 hrs).
  • Put vinegar and water together in a saucepan cook on low heat.
  • Thin slice the garlic and add to the vinegar solution, add the dill (or dill seed if you cannot get fresh) 2 teaspoons of coriander seeds, simmer for 5 minutes.
  • Take off heat.
  • After 4 hours the cucumbers will be saturated with water (the salt dehydrates them ie removes the liquid from the cucumbers).
  • Wash the cucumbers 3 times in fresh water, shake dry!
  • add to the vinegar mixture.
  • The dedhydrated cucumbers absorb this wonderful dill/garlic flavour and believe it or not are ready to eat the next day!
