Quick Pickles [Zack]

Don't have time to let some gorgeous pickles cure in your fridge?  Here is a solution that will get you by in a pinch.  The combination of spices and vinegar makes a tangy addition to your meal.  In order to make up for the lack of the curing process, you leave out the water portion of the original cure and let the vinegar shine through.


Slice the cucumber really thinly.  Use a mandolin if you have one.  Place them in a container with a lid (so you can shake em up later) and pour the vinegar over to coat.

Next, add in the cumin seeds, coriander powder, hot pepper flakes, honey, and salt.

Cover and gently shake up to mix contents.

Keep in the fridge until ready to serve!  Goes great on a sandwich, or as a side to a meat dish.


1 large cucumber sliced thinly
8 T tarragon or other vinegar
1 T cumin seeds
1 T coriander powder
1 tsp hot pepper flakes
1 tsp salt
1 T honey
