This One Is For You...

These pickles were my family’s favorite when my daughter was growing up. It is an easy recipe and quite tasty. We were always digging in the freezer getting another bowl out. Susan over at This Day asked if I would share it, so Susan this is for you. My sister-in-law Carole shared it with me a long, long time ago, and I know she will not mind me sharing it with all of you. Enjoy!


2 qts cucumbers, thinly sliced

1 ½ cups sugar
1 onion, sliced

½ cup vinegar
1 tsp pickle salt

Put pickle salt over sliced cucumbers and onions. Let stand for 2 hours. Mix sugar and vinegar and bring to a boil. Set aside to cool. Pour over pickles at end of 2 hours. Freeze. Stir well when thawed. I froze them in little margarine bowls, but I am sure freezer bags or jars would work fine.

We have had a little reprieve in our weather this week. It has been in the 80’s and not quite as humid. Last week was miserable. Hope you are having a wonderful week!

“He hath made the earth by his power, he hath established the world by his wisdom, and hath stretched out the heaven by his understanding. When he uttereth his voice, there is a multitude of waters in the heavens; and he causeth the vapours to ascend from the ends with rain, and bringeth forth the wind out of his treasures.” Jeremiah 51:15-16
