Directions

1. Cut the cucumbers into very thin slices (using a mandoline works wonders for this job) and thinly slice the red onion as well. Lay cucumber and onion in the bottom of a mason jar, top with red chili pepper flakes, peppercorns, turmeric slices and mint leaves. Repeat the process with another layer of cucumbers and so on.

2. In a small saucepan, heat water, white vinegar, sugar and salt until simmering. Remove from heat and cool to room temperature.

3. Pour over the cucumbers, tossing lightly to coat. Cover tightly and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes and keep up to 1 week. Enjoy!

Recipe note: Adding fresh mint gives a refreshing aftertaste to the pickles.
