  • 1/2 cup white vinegar
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1 medium cucumber sliced


  • Cut cucumbers to fit in jar of choice.  Add salt, pepper, red pepper flakes, and sugar to jar.  I use coconut sugar because it is what I have on hand and it doesn’t change the flavor, but will make it light brown in color.  Feel free to use whatever type you prefer.
  • Add water and vinegar to jar and shake covered until well mixed with seasoning.  The water and vinegar combo should make up no more than ⅔ of the jar.  As you add cucumbers the liquid will raise.  This quantity is designed for a 12 ounce mason jar.
  • Add cucumbers to jars, half in each. Cover, shake, and place in fridge to ferment.  I prefer mine to sit for a couple hours but anytime after 15 minutes is fine.
