This is absolutely so simple and the fact that this can be done in a snap means that there's no reason not to grab a couple cucumbers from the Farmer's Market and whip up a batch of fresh pickles to feed your family, bbq guests or yourself a cool snack when you're hungry for something healthy but a little bit sweet. This isn't the same process you would use in canning but that's juzt fine by me. The shelf life s much shorter but they won't last long in my home anyway. I popped these in some tupperware and ate them within 24 hours. The neighbor was impressed with my immediate need to make these but was also touched that her mother's recipe had made it's way into new hands and new appreciation!
Do you have a recipe for pickles or anything using cucumbers? I'd love to try it!
