Quick-pickled Cucumbers (pg. 65)

These were, well, quick.  Sort of a filler post until it’s all brought together.

Slicing into 1/8th inch with a Mandoline, next to mise en place.

Combine Salt and Sugar, let sit for 15 minutes.

These came out pretty good.  Although they are not rocket science, they can come out sweet.  I did a batch the day before as a little snack to munch on.  Recipe repeated the next day when it all came together for the Momofuku pork buns.

Lessons Learned

  • Take more photo’s.  Since these were made just before bringing everything together, they went right into the pork buns and I never photographed the final quick-pickled cucumbers alone.

Coming Soon:  Momofuku Pork Buns (pg. 79)

    is it just salt, sugar and cukes? no liquids – oil or rice vinegar? or does the salt/sugar pull the water out of the cukes to make a ‘dressing’?

    btw – are you cooking at your place in the city in these pics or at your parent’s house? it looked like your parent’s kitchen in a couple of the pics
