Here’s a super simple cucumber recipe thanks to CSA member Debbie!  Wash the cukes first and soak a while in ice water.


2 quarts fresh cukes
2 heads dill (When I don’t have it, I use dry dill seed & dill weed)
3 Tablespoons canning salt
1 cup white vinegar
3 cloves garlic, sliced thin
2 Tablespoons whole mixed pickling spice

Pack cukes lightly in 2 quart jar. Add rest  of ingredients. Fill jar with cold tap water. Keep in the refrigerator. Shake occasionally to dissolve the salt.  Leave sit 2 weeks.

We just broke into the 1st jar of the season-yum!

PS-Another cuke beverage-Cucumber water is refreshing and delicious. Just add a few slices of cuke to your glass or pitcher of ice water. It’s a lot like adding lemon slices but the cuke slices are crisp and crunchy when the water is gone!
