Recipe by barefootmommawv
I got this recipe from my MIL and she got it from the newspaper. The orginial poster is Mary Ellen Largent from Morgan County WV. I started making these last year when my cucumber plants decided to over produce. They keep for 6 or months in the fridge. They are enjoyed by all here. Not to sweet and not to sour. Note cooking time is refrigeration time.

I made these a few weeks ago and they are easy, perfect and just delicious.
I use them on sandwiches, burgers or just a nice side condiment. I loved them. I cut mine about 1/4-1/3" thick. They were just delicious
Thank you for a great recipe.
