This I like =)

Quick Salted Cucumber (gherkins).

Approximately one kilograms Cucumber
12 cup (deciliterl) cold water
1 cup (deciliterl) salt
1 tablespoon granulated sugar

The two ingredients below can be excluded:
3-4 dill crowns (I used dried dill)
4-5 currant leaves

Wash / brush clean cucumbers and "peck" them 3-4 times with a fork.
Add them down in a bowl with a lid that holds all the cucumbers.
Measure out the water and mix in salt and sugar.
Stir until sugar and salt are completely dissolved.
Dowse over the salt-sugar syrup over the cucumbers, and let everything rest for at least two days before eating them.

Now they are ready to be eaten.

Slice thinly and arrange on e.g. a liver pâté sandwich.
The cucumbers taste even good with a piece of meat.

The cucumbers will remain fresh for about two weeks in the fridge (if not eaten before then of course).

Thank you Eva, I'm always looking for good pickled cucumber recipes, so I will try this in summer.
