I have made these since God was a child! We freeze some at the end of the season & just keep them in the fridge & eat them during the season.They have a sweet, slightly salty taste & you can't stop eating them.

How To Make freezer pickles (or not!)

  • 1
    In large bowl, combine salt & enough water to cover the cucumbers.
  • 2
    Once salt is dissolved, add the cucumbers & onions.
  • 3
    Place a saucer on top of them to hold them down under the water.
  • 4
    Let set for 4 hours on counter top.
  • 5
    Meanwhile, add sugar & vinegar to a medium sauce pan & bring just to a boil. Remove from heat & cool completely.
  • 6
    Pour water solution off of cucumbers & rinse & drain.
  • 7
    Place in container suitable for freezing, if that's your intentions, or just place in fridge container with tight lid. I use a 1/2 gallon canning jar.
  • 8
    Pour vinegar solution over them & either freeze right away or place in fridge overnight before serving.
  • 9
    We eat them as an appetizer, as a side dish or just however you like.

    These will keep for quite a while, if they last that long!
