  • 100 ml apple cider vinegar (or white wine vinegar)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon white sugar
  • 5 twists black pepper (or to taste)
  • 1 tablespoon dill chopped finely
  • ½ cucumber sliced thinly


  1. Take an old clean jam jar and add the vinegar, salt, sugar, black pepper and dill. Screw on the lid and shake until the salt and sugar have dissolved.
  2. Fill the jar with the sliced cucumber. Top up with a little extra vinegar, if necessary, so the cucumber is completely submerged under the vinegar.

  3. Screw on the lid and shake again.
  4. Either serve straight away or leave for a few hours in the fridge before serving for an even better taste!
