Quick Pickling

These are not ‘shelf stable’, but will last weeks in the refrigerator. English Cucumber and Red Onion.

One tablespoon Sugar to two tablespoons Salt. Three cloves garlic. To that add three cups boiling water and let the sugar and salt dissolve. When it’s cool, add one cup White Vinegar.

Mandolin does quick and even work. I like the heavier metal ones apposed to plastic. I would hate to have a plastic one flex or shoot off the cutting board mid maneuver. I like my hand just the way it is.
