Fresh Pickled Cucumbers

Fresh Pickled Cucumber

An easy recipe for Scandinavian-style fresh pickled cucumbers with dill.  



1 large cucumber (preferably an English cucumber), sliced thin

2 tablespoons chopped fresh dill

1 cup distilled white vinegar

1 cup water

¼ cup granulated sugar

1 teaspoon black peppercorns

1 teaspoon coarse salt


  1. Place sliced cucumbers and dill in a quart-size mason jar
  2. Heat remaining ingredients in a saucepan over medium heat until simmering.

  3. Pour vinegar mixture into the jar with the cucumbers and dill.  Let sit at room temperature for at least 30 minutes before using.  If you are not eating them immediately, cover and refrigerate the cucumbers once the mixture has cooled to room temperature.  The cucumbers are best fresh but will keep in the fridge for a week.
