For US to UK equivalents see this rough guide

Recipe Ingredients:

  • Cucumbers - 4
  • White Vinegar - 2 Cups
  • Salt
  • Water - 1/2 Cup
  • Sugar
  • White Pepper - 1/2 tbsp
  • Fresh Dill Leaf - 2 tbsp
  • Tomatoes Small - to garnish


Wash the cucumbers and cut into thin slices. Take an aluminum foil and add the cucumbers as a layer and add salt on top of the layer. Close the foil and place a heavy plate as a weight on the foil. Keep in fridge for 6 hours. Whilst the salt should have absorbed most of the the liquid, squeeze cucumber slices to remove any excess. Take a frying pan add sugar, salt, pepper, cucumbers, vinegar and on low heat boil until the sugar is melted. Mix this mixture to the cucumbers. Keep it in fridge and cool it for 4-5 hours. Take the cucumbers out and it is ready to serve. Can be garnished with tomatoes.

As with all recipes which involve cooking and baking a sensible approach must be taken especially when dealing with warm or hot (temperature) ingredients. If you are unable to take due care, please do not attempt to make any of these recipes. All recipes are tried at your own risk.
