I got this recipe from my mother-in-law, she has used it for 30 years and I will probably use it for 30 more!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix Cucumbers and Onions together and sprinkle with salt, mix well and let stand 2-3 hours.
  2. Rinse and drain well.
  3. Mix Vinegar and Sugar till sugar is dissolved.
  4. Put cucumbers and onions in freezer containers or freezer bags, pour vinegar/sugar mixture over cukes and onions (I only fill mine half full to leave room for expansion during freezing).
  5. Freeze 3 weeks before eating, the longer you let them sit the sweeter the pickles.
  6. Thaw in refrigerator or in cold water.

This was exactly what I was looking for - a quick recipe with few ingredients to use up all of the cucumbers my neighbor gave me. They turned out great!

These are wonderful! I loved the fact that they can be made ahead of time and frozen. Lovely side dish! I served these with my Chicken Paprikas. You can be sure I will always have a container or two in the freezer.
