Cinnamon Cucumber Pickles

READY IN: 72hrs 30mins
Recipe by Jellyqueen

Don't be put off by the steps involved in making these pickles. It is not really hard at all, just takes a few minutes of planning time to work out the cooking when it is best for your schedule. The end results are well worth the effort. People do not believe that these are cucumber pickles. Most people think they are cinnamon apple rings.

The list of ingredients indicates 1 cup of vinegar the first time it is used but 2 cups of vinegar in the body of the recipe. Which is it?
