Quick Pickled Cucumbers

Quick Pickled Cucumbers

My kids live for these….you can either slice them with a maiden ort by hand with a very sharp small paring knife….I love to cut them by hand…it is oddly therapeutic..use Material Kitchen paring knife its my new favorite 
3 packages organic baby cucumbers (you can use 2 regular size cucumbers as well but the smaller Persian style cucumbers are the best) Sliced paper thin skin on.
3/4 cup water
1/3 cup Rice Vinegar (or apple cider )
1/3 cup sugar (optional) We like them sweet but you can omit the sugar if adding peppers and looking for a savory cucumber
1-2 teaspoons JF Universal Salt
If making savory…..some great additions
add 1/2 cup thinly sliced green onion
add thinly sliced jalapeño and red cherry peppers (this makes a great side for brisket or red meat)
In a small bowl combine water, vinegar, sugar and salt till dissolved. In a larger bowl place cucumbers and pour liquid over cucumbers. Stir well. The cucumbers will release some moisture. 
Transfer to an airtight container and store in fridge.. they are great if you can get them to last overnight but normally my kids eat them all….its good to double the recipe so you have leftovers.
