DIRECTIONS

  • Place the verbena leaves, lemon zest, and peppercorns in a quart jar. Pack with the cucumbers, being careful not to crush them.
  • Bring the vinegar, water, and salt to a boil in a small nonreactive pot, stirring to dissolve the salt.
  • Pour over the cucumbers, leaving a 1/2" headspace. Make sure the cucumbers are submerged. Check for air bubbles, wipe the rim, and seal.
  • Process for 10 minutes in a boiling water bath. Adjust time according to your altitude.
  • NOTE: Lemon verbena looks similar to Thai basil but is used to add a lemony flavor to food.
