4 cups distilled white vinegar
6 tablespoons GOLDEN BLOSSOM HONEY
1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1 teaspoon whole black peppercorns
1 teaspoon mustard seeds
1 teaspoon coriander seeds
1/2 teaspoon fennel seeds
1/2 teaspoon cumin seeds
1 tablespoon coarse kosher salt
2 seedless cucumbers, unpeeld, washed and scrubbed
2 tablespoons fresh cilantro leaves
several springs fresh dill leaves
How Honey Is Created
Honey is created when bees mix plant nectar, a sweet substance secreted by flowers, with their own bee enzymes.
Cut cucumbers in half lengthwise. Then cut each half into 4 spears or desired size. Place in a bowl. Tuck cilantro leaves and dill sprigs in between spears. Pour brine over cucumbers. Refrigerate up to four days before serving. Will keep refrigerated for up to one week.
Yields: 16 spears
