Freezer Pickles!

Well folks it is that time of year again here in my little neck of the woods! Pickling time! We have a little garden this year and I planted pickling cucumbers. Today I pickled the first harvest. It is so quick and easy to make and they taste oh so yummy! I have posted the recipe below! Enjoy!

Frozen Pickles

1 lb. sliced cucumbers (1 quart)

2 Cups thinly sliced onions (I dice mine)

1 Tbsp salt

3 Tbsp water

1/2 Cup Cider Vinegar (do not use white vinegar)

1 Cup Sugar

Combine: water, salt, onions and cucumbers.

Let stand at room temperature for 2 hours Add sugar and vinegar. Stir until dissolved.

Pack lightly into 2- one quart containers.

Cover and freeze overnight or up to six weeks.

Note: You can freeze them for much longer than six weeks. I make enough to last about a year with no problems.

You can use any type of cucumber, however I prefer the smaller pickling cucumber for this batch, but I have used regular  cucumbers in the past.
