Pickled Cucumber

I grew up eating these pickled cucumbers with my congee for breakfast. Congee is rice porridge. Its rice that is cooked with a large amount of water for about an hour until it thickens. When eating congee, my mother would have condiments on the table for us to  eat with our rice. Usually consist of salted eggs, dried pork, cured anchovies, and an egg that is cooked like a pancake.

The taste of these pickled cucumbers tend to be sweet, not so acidic compare to western brands. Also, the size of the cucumber is same as a shape of coin.

Buy it and have fun with it! I put on my eggs and sandwiches.
