Karl’s Japanese Lightly Marinated Cucumbers

I had marinated the vegetables for the potato salad that I made to go with my Japanese curry wings. This left a half cup of slightly used pickle marinade that I did not want to waste. I decided to slice some cucumber and lightly marinate it for a second side dish.

Karl’s Sichuan Pepper Pickles

As I was buying the other vegetables for my stir-fries, I had an urge for pickles. For Chinese meals, the number of dishes you serve is a sign of respect. The greater the number of dishes the greater the respect—but also the greater the guanxi debt that person will owe you. I am making roast pork, a vegetable stir fry, and a mushroom dish for Sunday’s dinner.

Karl’s Japanese Orange Cucumber Pickles

I made sukiyaki this Sunday for the family dinner. The final simmer takes place on the table and I decided that I should have some pickles on the table for my diners to snack on while they waited for the dish to finish cooking. I made some salt cabbage (kyabetsu shio-zuke; キャベツ塩-漬け ) and some cucumber pickles.

Karl’s Lemon Japanese Cucumber Pickles

Note: Today, I am posting a new pickle recipe. I was planning to refer the discussion I had made in this post, but when I got there the cupboard was bare, I found that I had forgotten to post the recipe. While this recipe produced a satisfactory pickle, the lemon flavor simply did not come through.
