Sounds weird, but this recipe is a quick and easy way to save, and later use, your overabundance of cucumbers from the garden. Just defrost and serve to friends and family as a special reminder of summer flavors, even in the dead of winter. Crunchy like pickles with a surprisingly pleasant flavor! Recipe courtesy of


  1. Mix all ingredients in large bowl.
  2. Refrigerate for 24 hours.
  3. Put in containers and freeze with the brine.
  4. Just defrost to serve.
  5. Tip: To save space and avoid freezer burn, I freeze this overnight in shallow freezer containers. Then, defrost slighty (or dip in a hot water bath) to release the food from the container. Seal the block of frozen food in a ziplock or seal-a-meal bag, label and stack back in the freezer until ready to use. This works great for all kinds of foods!
