Pickled Cucumbers

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by dojemi

These only stay crunchy for a day or so, then they begin to wilt. When I make them they never last longer than a day anyway.

I have to ask my mom for this same recipe every summer. We enjoy these with every meal as long as the cucumbers make in our garden. I don\'t soak the cucumbers. I only use 1 teaspoon of salt, any type of onions will do and I use apple cider vinegar. I don\'t boil the vinegar. I just pack a jar, add sugar, salt and dill and pour in the vinegar and water. I will re-use the liquid several times. My husband likes straight vinegar (no water).
