Pickled Cucumbers

Pickled veg are a great way to add flavour to things like salads and sandwiches and these pickled cucumbers are so quick and easy to do that we always have a jar of them in our fridge in the summer. 



  • 1 cucumber finely sliced
  • 1 tbsp of Achill Island Sea Salt, plus extra for the cucumbers 
  • 50g castor sugar
  • 200ml of Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 10 fennel seeds 
  • Pinch of Chilli flakes 


  1. Add the finely sliced cucumbers to a bowl and sprinkle with a generous pinch of sea salt and toss. Leave for 10 mins, then rinse and drain. 
  2. In a heavy based saucepan add the vinegar, sugar, sea salt and spices and bring to a simmer until the salt and sugar has dissolved, remove from heat. 
  3. Add the cucumbers to a sterilised jar and pour over the cooled vinegar.
  4. Seal and leave to cool before placing in the fridge. Once open these will keep for about 1-2 weeks.
