Homemade Pickled Cucumber / Easy Cucumber Pickle Recipe

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. Same pinch, I have made this few days back but mine recipe is quite different from it, your recipe looks really damn yummy with dill leaves it must be very tasty 😋

  2. Quite an easy pickle to make, i love these pickled in my sandwiches. Beautiful share, though many varieties of pickled cucumber do exists, yours sounds super easy.

  3. Honestly, we would be out of jobs if people at home weren’t or aren’t foodies so count your blessings and thank God your son is a major foodie and motivates you to cook variety. haha. Nothing beats homemade pickles. You can do it when you want in small batches and preservative free too.

  4. 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! 😊

  5. As an Indian, pickles always mean oil and chillli powder so the first time I saw a pickled gherkin as a child I was mystified. Later I understood what pickling means and since then there has been no looking back. 🙂

  6. Pickled cucumber without any artificial preservatives or flavorings. I’m not a fan of pickled cucumber but hubby loves it. I should try this recipe as we don’t get it ready made here.

  7. I love pickeled cucumbers in my sub sandwich. This is a nice and tasty idea to make the pickle at home, bookmarking to try.
