  • 2 large or 4 small cucumbers sliced thin
  • 1 Tbsp salt
  • Sprinkle the salt over the cucumbers in a colander and let them sit for 1 hour.
  • Drain and rinse.
  • Mix the following in a jar
  • 1 cup vinegar
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. dill weed


  1. Cover and shake well then add the cucumbers.
  2. Refrigerate and enjoy the next day.
  3. This will stay crisp and good in the refrigerator at least 6 months. I have never had any last any longer than that! Six months was a long time for us but they were hidden in an 'extra' refrigerator and forgotten for awhile.
  4. The slicing of the cucumbers can be made easy and consistent if you use a food processor. However, using a food processor is not necessary. The great thing about (most) my food processor is that it will not work unless all parts are in place therefore making it much safer for children than many kitchen appliances! You may slice the cucumbers any shape you desire--round or sticks.
    Optional variation: If you love garlic and or onions you may slice these and add them as well. My children LOVE eating pickled garlic! Warning, if you use fresh garlic it may change colors!:)
