My Dad taught me this recipe as his Moeder used to make it when he was young. Every now and then, normally in the middle of a hot Summer, Dad would crave this pickled cucumber and then set about making it himself.

This is a simple version of the pickled cucumber recipe, perfect for using when you want to eat now. For a more complicated version look here.
