This recipe is super easy and produces a nice, sweet pickle that goes well in salads, have on the side, or even use it on sandwiches. I have used it on my hamburgers and have even used it in my tuna salad and it is fantastic! I wanted to post my source for this recipe, but when I went on-line to see if they had any other delicious recipes for cucumbers, I found out that they were no longer up and running.
Okay, for this recipe you will need:
- 2 quarts cucumbers, peeled (optional) and thinly sliced. This recipe works well with any kind of cucumber.
- 1 medium onion, thinly sliced
- 1 tablespoon salt (table salt, canning salt, or kosher salt can be used)
- 1-1/2 cups sugar
- 1/2 cup white distilled vinegar
In a large mixing bowl, mix cucumbers, onions, and salt. Cover with plastic wrap and set on the counter for 2 hours. Drain and put back into rinsed bowl. In separate bowl, combine sugar and vinegar, stirring well. Pour sugar mixture over cucumbers and toss gently. Put cucumbers into freezer containers or zip-lock bags. Freeze immediately. Pickles are ready in 3-4 days. Just thaw and eat. If you wish to freeze for a later date, these can be kept in the freezer for up to a year.
I have made this recipe where I have frozen the pickles, and also where I have made it and then put them in jars to be eaten whenever. I prefer to eat them without being frozen as they are crunchier, however they are delicious either way!
I pray that our Heavenly Father will bless all your gardens with an abundant harvest this season!
