  • 4 bayleaves

Cucumber pickles

  1. Place the cucumber and salt in a colander and toss to combine. Leave for up to an hour.
  2. Tip into a clean tea towel and squeeze out any remaining liquid, slice into 2cm lengths, then place in a large bowl.
  3. Add the remaining ingredients, except the vinegar and water. Mix to combine. Spoon into a large sterile jar, then top with one-third vinegar and two-thirds water to cover the pickles. Seal and refrigerate until needed.
