2014-03-03 16.14.24Cover the cucumbers with water and refrigerate for 24 hours. Drain, and prick all over with a skewer. Put lots of dill, then cucumbers, and garlic, then more cucumbers (I slice them up) into a sterilised jar. In the meantime, boil the vinegar, salt, peppercorns and sugar, and pour into the jar until the cucumbers are covered. Leave for as long as possible. Eat when the thought of a cucumber is so unseasonal as to be laughable. Delicious with cold meats, cheese, or just on their own.
