In South-india we have brined pickles like Turkey berries in brine and Gooseberry in brine. Brine pickles have a longer shelf life and they are very easy to make and great on taste. Even now, i have a bottle of brined gooseberries in my refrigerator, i love to enjoy it with simple curd rice or add it to chutney’s.

I understand how the older generation might view our 'rush' for the blogging marathons. The pickled cucumbers sound good but not much demand for vinegar based pickles at home.
Love pickled cucumbers in salads and in sandwiches. I love both cucumbers as well as cabbages. Yummm.
That pickled cucumber bottled is looking great. I have never had pickled cucumbers. But we love pickled onions. Must try these too

This quick pickle sounds like the perfect way to use up the garden cucumbers this summer. With BBQ's happening all summer long, these pickles would be used up in a flash.

I love pickled Cucumbers ! Your recipe looks so easy and I can not wait to make a batch 🙂 Although I had to google Lebanese Cucumbers (unknown to me), but it seems to be more or less the same as our English Cucumbers
I love cucumbers and usually love to use the small size. I must try this way when I have large one.. Sounds so delicious. Perfect when we have things like falafel and shawarma in our home.
I love pickled cucumbers but never attempted to make at home. Thanks for sharing this recipe and now I can make them too.
The name intimidated me, but these sound just delicious! I am not sure I have ever seen lebanese cucumbers though here
This s a new version of pickling cucumbers to me.
