      From past experience, I made the conversion, but anyone new to Cinnamon Cucumber Rings needs to realize there is most likely an error in these directions. I don't think it is sliced limes that go in the soaking water but pickling lime--an ingredient that makes them crunchy. You can find pickling lime with canning supplies at the grocery store. All the cinnamon cucumber rings I have ever made call for either pickling lime or alum. When done right, these are slightly translucent and wonderfully crisp.

      This sounds like a lot of work, but it's worth it! The finished product tastes like those pricy spiced apple slices you get around the holidays. When I first tried the recipe, I used cucumbers that had grown too large to eat, removing the seedy middles and slicing the remaining cucumber flesh. As a much less experienced cook in those days, I had everything in my kitchen stained pink from the food coloring in the recipe - LOL. But the end result was so appreciated by my family, I continued to make this. Thanks for posting!!
