I just sat down to a lunch of bread & butter cucumbers, cheese, crackers, and a pot of Earl Grey tea. A satisfying simple lunch made even more enjoyable by the knowledge I made the pickles myself.
Bread and butter cucumbers are delicious, easy to make, and incredibly economical if you purchase the cucumbers when they’re in season or even better, grow your own. I picked up one and half kilos at the local markets when they were super cheap. They were a little wonky looking, which accounted for the extra low price, but of course this made no difference as I was going to slice them up.
Rhonda has an excellent recipe on her Down to Earth blog here and it’s the one I used in the photos below. What’s your favourite pickle recipe? How do you utilise a glut of cucumbers?
