What you see here is a delicious cucumber from Beth’s garden.  Since I have no gardening skills, I try to surround myself with good gardeners with surplus produce.  (Thanks, Beth.)  At one of my home visits last night a family gave me a bucket of tomatoes.  Awesome!

Anyway, I made that vinegar-sugar pickle stuff with this cucumber, and this time I used the jazzy little cutter that’s for crinkle fries.  It makes everything more fun to eat!  The vinegar stuff was a little off tonight, though.  I never measure for this – a splash of vinegar, a splash of water, a shake of sugar, salt & pepper.  If I cough when I eat it, it has too much vinegar (add more sugar to fix). So I’m sure you all must have a version of this favorite.  Share it so I can stop coughing.

Crinkle cut cucumbers!  A triple-c threat.

    Here’s the easiest version ever: Get seasoned rice vinegar. Sprinkle some on sliced cucumers. Eat.

    That is either one GIANT cucumber or one small bowl??? What fertilizer do you use Beth?

    My recipe: remove all seeds from cucumber, cut into small pieces, hide pieces in a bowl of lettuce, spray with water, salt well, eat & enjoy!
