2

Drain cucumbers and red onion, and give it a squeeze to remove excess liquid. Place them temporarily into sterilized jars to work out how much vinegar you would need. For example, if you have 2 jars of drained vegetables, you will need to fill one empty jar with vinegar, and pour that into a saucepan.

3

Add equal parts of sugar to the pan, a tsp of salt and warm till sugar has dissolved. Set aside to cool.

4

Fill jars with drained vegetables and pour over cooled vinegar solution. Leave to pickle for 30 mins minimum.
