Traditional Japanese Cucumber Pickle

Always use Maldon salt when making pickles.

Recipe By: Deepseafish (https://cookbuzz.com/kitchen/269)
Serves 3-4

Ingredients

Cucumber 1 (300g)
Salt 1.5 tsp
Ginger 10g
Soy sauce 50ml (3+ tbsp)
Salt (Maldon) 2 tsp
Water 150ml (10 tbsp)
Sugar 70g (4+ tbsp)
Vinegar 18ml (1+ tbsp)

Method

1
Wash the cucumber and cut into 8mm slices. Rub with the salt and keep for 30 minutes. Cut the ginger into fine strips.
2
Wipe off the salt from the cucumber and pat dry. Put the soy sauce, Maldon salt, water, sugar, vinegar and ginger in a pan and bring to the boil. Add the cucumber to the pan, bring to the boil then turn the heat off.
3
Allow to cool for 20 minutes then remove the cucumber and ginger to a plate. Bring the pickling liquid to the boil and return the cucumber and ginger to the pan. Turn the heat off.
4
Allow to cool completely, it's ready to try now but it's better if kept in the fridge for a while.
5
Don't waste the pickling liquid - you can use it to make more pickles, of celery, cabbage or broccoli for example.

Tips & Note

I wanted to keep the cucumber crunchy so allow to cool for only 20 minutes at Step 3. You can keep for longer (30 minutes) if you prefer it softer.
