A few weeks ago I was super proud of my daughter who came home from Farmers Market and told me someone had the cucumbers labeled ‘Pickle’. Cucumbers aren’t pickles until you process them of course. In today’s post I share one of my favorite recipes this time of year when the cucumbers are abundant in my home garden and farmers market. This recipe is super healthy and you can add a bit of a kick to it by throwing in a hot pepper from the garden as well. The really great thing about Quick and Spicy Asian Cucumber Pickles Recipe is you don’t have to wait weeks like traditional pickles to enjoy!
Quick and Spicy Asian Cucumber Pickles Recipe
The recipe is easy because ingredients are common in most kitchen cabinets year-round. During the summer months, it is super important to stock up on vinegar to quickly process many veggies like cucumbers.
This recipe was shared with me years ago and I’ve changed it by adding a few extras. Thank you Bari Clark in Orlando Florida for inspiring me!
In The Kitchen
Fresh from the garden and prepared in the kitchen. Today’s recipe will make your mouth water and your heart sing.
I’m trialing a new variety of Stevia called SweetTang. I’m excited to use this in my recipe for sweetness. Did you know stevia is totally all-natural and has ZERO calories? I muddled it with some rice vinegar instead of using sugar in today’s recipe.
I brought this plant home with me from the Cultivate 2017 show from the awesome folks at Hort Couture. I hope to winter this over in my geodesic bio dome so I can enjoy this all winter long.

In the kitchen… I hope you enjoy these images of the recipe being put together.
UPDATE: there will be more Quick and Spicy Asian Cucumber Pickles year-round because the stevia wintered over in the dome PERFECT!
I can’t wait to hear if you added the stevia to this recipe like I did. Don’t forget to send comments my way about the Quick and Spicy Asian Cucumber Pickles Recipe. Share a comment below and always be sure to share my post on social media where I will find you at @BrenHaas
