Pickled Cucumber

Yet another thing I have not made in a long time. Pickled cucumbers. I told Leif I will make some. For a little while he was totally flabbergasted. Then he tried to talk me out of the idea saying it’s not worth all the trouble because they don’t cost very much in the supermarket. Yeah, yeah . . . I know but I want to do it just for the fun of doing it. I bought five kilograms of cucumbers, a paper bag containing a mix of spices/preservative, some dill crowns and vinegar. I picked some blackcurrant leaves from our own bush. After a couple of hours washing the jars, washing the cucumbers, boiling the water, vinegar, sugar etc. I was able to enjoy looking at six jars of pickled cucumber. I hope they are as good as they smell. We have to wait two weeks to find out.
Yes it was fun !
