Sweet Pickled Cucumber
These are what Americans in the South call 'bread and butter pickles' I believe. A great way to use up the two enormous cucumbers I got from Riverford over the last couple of weeks. I got the recipe from the marvellous Cottage Smallholder blog, courtesy of my online cooking pal, Veronica, who also has a wonderful blog, La Recette du Jour - full of evocative recipes, pictures and anecdotes from the south of France and Northern Spain. Do take a look. Anyway, this pickle is now safely (we hope!) entombed in preserving jars for a month or so to mature - I'll report back on it when we crack open a jar.
