IntroductionMy mother made this delicious summer recipe using fresh cucumbers from our garden. My mother made this delicious summer recipe using fresh cucumbers from our garden.
4 medium Cucumbers (peeled)
.5 cup white onion chopped
1 cup distilled white vinegar
.5 cup granulated white sugar
While vinegar mixture cools slightly, thinly slice the cucumbers. (My mom thought that the thinner the slice, the better they taste, but thinness is really a matter of choice.) Place sliced cucumbers in storage container. Chop 1/2 cup of white onion (red does not provide the right flavor) and add to cucumbers.
Pour vinegar/sugar mixture over cucumbers/onions and stir gently to mix ingredients. (Vinegar mixture will still be warm.) Cover storage container and refrigerate for at least 4 hours, although overnight is better. When ready to serve, remove container from refrigerator, gently stir and serve. Makes 8+ 1/2 cup servings.
Number of Servings: 8
