In Sweden we call pickled cucumber pressgurka and it is very easy to make. I love it with paté on a sandwich, but it is great with meatballs, boiled potatoes and creamy gravy as well.
Pickled cucumber – pressgurka
1 tsp salt
75 ml granulated sugar
acetic acid solution (in Swedish ättika, mix 1 part acetic acid with 6-7 parts water)
1 tbsp water
Thinly slice the cucumber. This is easily done with a cheese slicer or potato peeler. Put the cucumber in a jar and pour in the salt and sugar, next add the acetic acid solution and water. Stir and make sure the salt and sugar dissolves. Throw in the parsley and stir again. Put on the lid and leave in fridge until the next day. Use within a week.
