Homemade Pickles

My neighbor makes homemade pickles and just gave me one of her last jars.
Here is her very simple recipe:

Vinegar Pickles

4 lebanese cucumbers

2 t kosher flake salt

2 cups seasoned rice vinegar

Slice cucumbers thinly. Place the cucumbers in a small bowl and add the salt, stirring to combine. Let the salted cucumbers sit for 20 minutes and then rinse thoroughly. Cover with boiling water, then drain. Place cucumbers in a mason jar or other storage jar and cover with seasoned rice vinegar. These will keep for a week or two in the fridge.

You can also use this recipe to “pickle” other vegetables too!

Bon Appetit!
