This is the way I grew up eating cucumbers. My mother always used apple cider vinegar, and they were great!
I LOVE this! I've had this since I was kid. Instead of just vinegar I usually add a little salt, pepper, onion powder, and garlic powder and let it sit for a bit. And we actually use white vinegar for this rather than apple cider, though both work great! If you do use white vinegar and want to tone down the tang, I suggest adding a little sugar or for us diabetics, use some splenda... works amazing. If you love this, try it with some jicama! You will definitely fall in love!
Cucumbers in vinegar are nothing new to me. This is a "southern thang".Down here in the south,we know how to eat and how to fix good and tasty dishes. This is one of them.However instead of 2-3 spoonfuls of vinegar you are supposed to pour in a cup or two of vinegar to allow the cucumbers to be covered so the vinegar will saturate into the cucumbers better. That's where the tangy flavor comes from. We also will cut up an onion or two into small slivers and put the onions in the vinegar with the cucumbers.Oh so good! I usually eat them right out of the vinegar straight,but sometimes I will sprinkle very lightly a little salt on them. Again,oh so good! Here in the south, most of us use white distilled vinegar and not apple cidar vinegar. The apple cidar vinegar is too whew! and tangy,where the white distilled vinegar is just tangy to taste. Anyway,we've always used the white. So just remember people,you heard it right,cucumbers in vinegar is a southern thang! A thang with a twang!
Known in my family as bellyachers. Because you can't stop eating them. My mother would add a couple of steps. She would slice the cucumbers thin. Then sprinkle salt on them. She would place a heavy plate on top of them and leave them sit for about 30 minutes. Then she would rinse them off and add the vinegar.
I didn't marke this since i didn't have any vinegar on hand, so i ended up just having cucumbers with a little salt and pepper, but i will have to try this next time!
I thought I was going to go crazy for these but they were just ok. I needed a bit more zip, maybe some garlic salt next time.
I also love cukes this way, however I add a tiny bit of sugar to offset the acidity of the vinegar. Kind of a sweet and sour thing.
My mom served cucumbers this way too! Sprinkle with s & p... I love them.
I love this, my mother taught me this one when I was a little girl. Now I've passed it on to my kids! I like adding a little salt when nobody is looking....
Delicous and very easy, I love this idea! I made this for a late night snack for my husband and he really enjoyed it. Thanks for posting! Made for ZWT 4 :)
