Tangy-but-sweet! This is a GREAT way to use up the OVERSIZE cukes that get missed in the garden. Zucchinis also work well in place of the cukes! Quantities listed are approximate--you can fudge or substitute a bit and still have excellent results. NOTE: Quantities listed are for GROUND UP amounts...

- 4In a large saucepan, combine spices and brown sugar with vinegar; heat to boiling (very fragrant!); pour over cuke mixture; let stand 12-18 hours (overnight is fine, too).
