This is a recipe I had many times as a kid. It was my favorite way to have cucumbers – and it still is! The perfect balance between vinegar, sweetness, and crispness. I brought this recipe with me to the Midwest and made it for my husband on a holiday once. Mr. B never had it before – and loved it! It has become a stable in our house for cucumbers. I just seriously crave this sometimes! It only gets better the longer it sits.
Bonus: It is free of the top eight allergies!
Time: 4 to 12 hours
Free of the Top Eight Allergies
- 2 cucumbers, thinly sliced
- 1/2 cup of white vinegar
- 1/2 cup of water
- 3 tbsp of sugar
- 1/2 tsp of salt
- 1/8 tsp of pepper
Cut the cucumbers as thinly as possible and place in a small bowl.
Pour in the bowl the vinegar, water, sugar, salt, and pepper. Stir until the sugar is dissolved.
Cover and refrigerate for at least 4 hours. I prefer 12 hours for the most flavor. After the refrigeration, enjoy!
All the Best,
