Quick Pickled Cucumbers

This is a quick pickled cucumber recipe I knocked up.

The first image is of the empty jar (just with pickling solution remaining) but it does have the recipe written on it - a picture tells a thousand words :p

The second image is some gherkins I picked this morning and quickly pickled. From start to finish, the whole process takes less than 15 minutes and a jar of pickled cucumbers is done!

Are burpless cucumbers suitable for pickling?
Certainly are!

Practically all cucumbers are fine. You do have your specialist pickling varieties but most need to be picked small otherwise they become terribly bitter. All of the large varieties can be pickled even if they are picked large just quarter them length-ways and they'll still make a good pickle. No matter the variety the best size to pickle whole is 10 cm or under.
