Ingredients

  • 3 pickling cucumbers sliced length-wise into 4 spears each
  • 4 garlic cloves peeled & smashed
  • 1/4 teaspoon red chili flakes
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1 1/4 teaspoon sea salt or pink salt
  • 1 teaspoon coconut sugar

Instructions

  • Slice the cucumbers and smash the garlic.
  • Place the garlic in the bottom of a pint-sized jar.
  • Pack the cucumbers (vertically) into the jar on top of the garlic. You want to place them so they are snugly fit and will not rise when brine is added.
  • Sprinkle chili flakes into the jar.
  • In a sauce pan over low heat combine water, vinegar, salt and sugar.
  • Heat, while stirring, just until salt and sugar are dissolved.
  • Pour this brine over your packed cucumbers in the jar until they are just covered.
  • Let sit uncovered for 10-15 minutes, or until jar is only slightly warm to touch.
  • Screw a lid on tightly and place in the refrigerator for at least 24 hours before serving.
  • Enjoy!
