Pickled Cucumbers

My garden looks so happy this year and the cucumbers having been coming in abundance!  I love fresh cucumbers with cottage cheese and I grew up eating a version of pickled cucumbers, but my friend, Paula, introduced me to THE best way to eat them.  It also preserves them for a long time in the fridge.

Thinly slice cucumbers and white/yellow or vidalia many or as few as you want.
Cover with EQUAL parts water, vinegar and sugar.  

Yes, it seems like a lot of sugar, but it really is good.  Best when it can sit at least 8 hours or overnight before first use.

We use it like a relish, eat it over bean soup and even have it as a side dish at many summer meals.

Yumm!  Yumm!



  1. Sooo good! If you have too much, just yell and I'll help you eat them.

  2. Mmmmmm. Thanks for the recipe, Kristin!

    BTW, there's a blogging award waiting for you at my blog. :)
