Recipe: Freezer Cucumber Pickles

If your garden is producing a plethora of cucumbers, here is a quick and easy recipe. (I made it last evening---very quick & easy!)

Freezer Cucumber Pickles

2 cups onion, thinly sliced
1/4 cup salt
3/4 cup water
4 cups sugar
2 cups cider vinegar
1 T. Mrs. Dash Tomato, Basil, Garlic Seasoning (optional)

In a large bowl(s) combine sliced cucumbers, onions, salt & water. Let stand at room temperature for 2 hours. Do not drain. Add sugar, vinegar, & seasonings and stir until sugar is disolved. Pack into freezer containers leaving 1 inch headspace. Cover with lids and freeze for up to 6 weeks.

To serve: Thaw at room temperature for 4 hours.
