My son is a real foodie, so his demands never end when it comes to food. Not only that, it is difficult  to please him as far as food is concerned. To meet his demands, I have to keep my pantry well stocked.

As far as sauces and pickles are concerned, I buy them once or twice. Then I make it a point to try them myself. Next, that pickle or sauce is passed through a panel of tasters (my kids) for acceptance. When it passes the stringent test, that makes me glow with contentment.

My son’s latest craze is, pickled cucumbers. The day he tasted them, was after me to make them. I kept on dilly dallying until one fine day, he kept cucumbers in front of me and asked me to try them at that time only.

I picked up the bottle of pickled cucumber and read the ingredients. Luckily, all the basic ingredients were there. So without a delay, I set to work and made the pickle. It just took me 20 minutes in total to make this pickle, making me wonder why I  was delaying it so much.

After making the pickle, was the difficult time i.e. waiting time. Next day I kept the jar of pickled cucumber in front of my kids. To my relief, they loved the pickle so much that half of the jar was finished in tasting itself.

Here is my take on pickled cucumbers. Don’t linger it like I did, make it and enjoy!

  1. Reading about your son, I felt you were talking about my younger daughter 😄 It’s a good thing these fussy eaters keep us on our toes! We can’t imagine a meal without pickles and chutneys either at our place. This cucumber pickle sounds deeelicious and totally doable – the kind of recipe I love! 😊
