Simple Sweet Pickle Slices, sweet, sour and crunchy!

Welcome to Our Sunday Café, we are pleased you stopped by for a visit. Today we are offering another delicious recipe from our kitchen. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did…

This is really too easy to call it a recipe, but we will. These are so good! Honestly, if someone had told me that all you had to do was throw some cucumber slices in a jar, let it cool briefly and refrigerate overnight, I might not have listened.

But honestly, all you have to do is, throw some slices of cucumber into a jar...

Simple Sweet Pickle Slices

adapted from: every southern cook, ever!
makes 1 quart, double for 2 quarts and for picnics!

NOTE: this is not a processed product, all you need is the magic of your refrigerator and a bit of time.

1 large English cucumber, washed and sliced 1/4 inch
1/2 small onion, sliced thin and chopped a bit if you prefer pieces rather than rings
1/3 c sugar
1/4 c water
1/3 c vinegar
1/4 t salt (garlic salt is great also!)

Place onion, sugar, and water into a small pan, bring to a boil. Remove from heat, stir well to dissolve the sugar, add vinegar and salt, stir again.

Place cucumber slices into a mason jar, carefully pour the brine over the slices. Use a spoon to push the slices down if they float. Let cool until no longer hot, add a lid, and refrigerate overnight.
