Dietry Information


  • 450-500g Darts Farm baby cucumbers (cut in half length-ways)
  • 4 tsp salt
  • 600ml white vinegar
  • 125g white caster sugar
  • 4-6 small red chillies (for a kick!)
  • 2-4 bay leaves, quartered
  • 2 tbsp coriander seeds


STEP 1: Place the halved cucumbers into a colander. Using 2 teaspoons of salt, distribute between each layer of cucumbers. Cover with a heavy weight or tin, leave for 30 minutes. Then, rinse thoroughly and stand into 2 clean jars (with non-metal lids!)

STEP 2: Mix the remaining salt and the sugar with the vinegar, heat gently if needed to combine.

STEP 3: Tuck in the red chillis, coriander seeds and bay leaves around the baby cucumbers. 

STEP 4: Pour the salt, sugar and vinegar mix into the jar over the cucmbers until they are completely covered. Pop the jars into the fridge for 24-48 hours.

STEP 5: Serve as an accompaniment with salmon, a cheese and charcuterie board, or add them to your hot dogs or burgers in a summer BBQ!

*These will last for up to 2 weeks in the fridge- they are not a long-lasting pickle*
