  • 6 small cucumbers, finely chopped
  • 3 tablespoons dill, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon salt


  1. In a bowl, combine the cucumbers, dill and salt. Transfer the mixture to your Mortier Pilon jar. Make sure to leave 2 centimeters of headspace between the mixture and the rim of the jar.
  2. Let the mixture ferment at room temperature, covered, for at least 4 days. Once the desired level of fermentation has been reached, transfer to your Mortier Pilon Mason Jars, then refrigerate or serve.

To make it a little fancier, add it to some lacto-fermented mayo and you’ve got a homemade tartare sauce!
