nicandmik, I was going to c&p the recipes here for you but there's too many IMO, so I suggest that you have a look and choose for yourself from the variety at:-

Hope you find at least one recipe there that appeals to you. :-))

Thanks for that, although I did a search on the web address above and can't find one! But I will give the cucumber and pineapple one a go.

nicandmik, did you mean that you couldn't find a cucumber pickle at all or that you couldn't find a recipe that you like?

On that link (as in #2) there are these recipes... . .

Cucumber Relish - 3 versions of
Cucumber and Pineapple Relish
Tomato and Cucumber Relish
Cucumber Chutney - 3 versions of

so there are 8 recipes there for cucumber pickles which is why I didn't c&p from there - I felt that it was best for you to choose for yourself from those that are on that link as I don't have a personal favourite from there to recommend. :-))

Cut cucs night before , sprinkle with salt and drain off liquid before making relish.
Works a treat. made 10 jars friday.

Thanks heaps every one, I did manage to find some on that web address. I did a cucumber and tomato one that was basic and very nice. I'm about to try the one with pineapple as it uses more cucumber which was the aim as I have to many! !
