The secret to the crisp texture to these pickels, is the sugar. So whatever you do, DO NOT reduce the amount of sugar. This recipe works well with any kind of cucumber.
Ok, for this recipe you will need:
- 2 quarts cucumbers, peeled (optional) and thinly sliced
- 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
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, however they are delicious either way!
