¼ cup plus 1 tablespoon water
½ teaspoon fine sea salt
½ teaspoon whole black peppercorns
2 bay leaves
Combine all of the ingredients except the cucumber in a saucepan. Bring to a boil, stirring to dissolve the sugar and salt. Remove from the heat and let cool completely.
Trim the ends from the cucumber. Thinly slice lengthwise. Put in a storage container and pour over the pickling liquid.
