Storing container (big enough to fit the cucumbers)
Slice cucumber and put in container. A teaspoon of sugar also gives it a nice touch.
Add seasonings. Cover with lid and shake. Turn over pieces from time to time. If using a bag, rub the cucumbers.
Chill in the refrigerator. Wait for at least an hour. You could make this in the morning to have for dinner.
I also tried this with turnips.
They took longer to pickle than cucumbers. I'll create a different recipe for the turnips another time.
Story Behind this Recipe
Everyone in my family loved this dish!
Although using a plastic bag would pickle more evenly, I make and serve it in a Tupperware. The longer the pickling, the better the flavor. When pickling for a long time, it's good to add ichimi chili pepper powder before serving.
