Pickled cucumber

Apple remoulade

To serve

  • 180g of bresaola
  • dill
  • 1 handful of micro herbs
  • Peter's Yard Spelt & Poppy Seed crispbreads


Prepare the cucumbers at least a day ahead by placing the toasted fennel seeds, cider vinegar and caster sugar in a small pan. Bring to a simmer over a gentle heat, stirring until the sugar dissolves. Remove from the heat and stir in the sliced cucumbers and dill. Spoon everything into a 1 litre sterilised jar and seal. Leave the pickles somewhere cool overnight and once open keep the jar in the fridge and use within a month
Make the apple remoulade by placing the apple, celery and capers in a large bowl. Add the garlic, yoghurt, mustard and parsley to another small bowl. Stir to combine and then add to the apple mixture and stir again. Season to taste, adding extra lemon juice if required
Serve the crackers with a layer of pickled cucumber and apple remoulade top with bresaola. Garnish with extra dill and micro herbs
