For the love of the pickle…

Hot, sweet, crunchy, salty. Really there is nothing better. So, without further ado I give you:

Amy's Pickles

Amy’s Pickles

2 english cucumbers

1 fresno pepper

½ c rice vinegar

1 garlic clove, smashed and peeled

1 Tbs pickled ginger, thinly sliced or 1 tsp fresh grated ginger

4 tsp sugar

1 tsp salt

2 tbs fresh mint or 1 tsp dried mint

In a 6-8 cup tupperware dish, combine the vinegar, salt, sugar, garlic and mint. Thinly slice the cucumbers. Finely dice the fresno pepper. Combine all ingredients with a good shake, and store in the refrigerator for at least one hour. The pickles are best after one day, and will keep for three days. Oh, and unless you don’t want any friends, don’t eat the garlic clove and remove it before serving.

Try these with a glass of viogner for a really special pairing.

  1. My mum’s ‘secret recipe’ for cucumber was to slice it really thinly, with thinly sliced onions, pour over malt vinegar, leave for about four hours, then serve. Easy, but popular.

    Hi Amy! Just found out about your blog (from Mom), and read through everything you’ve posted! It’s a great site, I love the photos, the stories, and the recipes. You’ve made me hungry though, for shame! 🙂
