So Many Cucumbers and So Little Time to Eat Them? Freezer Pickles can get you more time to enjoy them. This is a good way to make use of plastic margarine tubs, peanut butter & mayonnaise containers. These are so good you will want to eat them right out the jar – we did!

Ingredients

  • 2 quarts cucumbers, sliced thin
  • 1 to 2 large onions, sliced thin
  • 2 tbsp salt
  • 3 cups sugar
  • 1 cup white vinegar
  • 1 tsp celery seed

Directions

Step 1

Mix sliced onions and cucumbers and salt in large container and cover with ice cold water, let stand for 2 hours.

Step 2

While this mixture is soaking mix the following: Combine sugar, vinegar and celery seed in a pot and bring to a boil. Remove from heat and let cool completely. Drain cucumber mixture and place in a large container and pour second mixture over cucumbers; stir and mix gently.

Step 3

Divide into freezer containers and freeze.

Very young tender cucumbers work best, about 8-9. A mandolin would work real well for slicing to the thinness needed.

This is a good way to make use of plastic margarine tubs, peanut butter & mayonnaise containers. Don't forget when filling to allow room for expanding. When ready to eat place container in refrigerator to defrost. Makes about 5 - 8 oz. containers.
