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.

Ingredients

  • 5 c
    peeled & sliced, pickling cucumbers
  • 1/2 c
    pickling salt
  • ·
    water
  • 2 c
    small pearl onions or just cut up regular onions
  • 1 c
    white vinegar
  • 1 c
    sugar

How to Make FREEZER PICKLES (or not!)

Step-by-Step

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