Growing up this is how my mom would fix the cukes but she would add sliced onion and green pepper. It is good and refreshing. I also add the onion and green pepper.

Do you place the sugar/vinegar mixture in with the cucumbers before freezing or drain it?

These cucumbers were a bit too sweet for me, but my family loves them, especially my husband. I did substitute Agave, for the sugar, as we can not eat refined sugar. They were easy to make and came out great. Thanks for a neat way to use up some of the abundance of garden cucumbers.

super easy to make. i cut the amount of vinegar & sugar to 1/2 cup and added dill - tasted great!

No thank you. I followed the recipe. I just thought they were too sweet. I don't call it a total waste. But it was an extensive wait for uninspiring results. I will search for a better recipe.

This recipe is for freezer pickles, not for use in salads or other dishes that call for fresh cucumbers. Per another poster's suggestion, I cut the amount of sugar to 1/2 cup and these turned out great! I was confused about whether or not to drain the liquid before freezing, since the instructions are vague, but based on what I read on another site, I discovered that the liquid should be frozen along with the cucumbers. I froze the cucumbers in small batches, so that I could defrost a small amount when needed for snacking or adding to burgers.

Brings back childhood memories! I also add green pepper, onion, and a little black pepper.
