Old-fashioned Cucumbers & Onions in Vinegar

Advertisements

I use to make these all the time. Then I haven’t for years till I seen this had to try it again. Turned out great. 😛 😛 

 

Ingredients :

  1. Cucumbers
  2. Vidalia onion (or other sweet variety)
  3. Equal parts vinegar and water
  4. Sugar
  5. Salt

Steps :

  1. Peel and slice cucumbers. If they are very large, halve lengthwise before slicing. I used 3 large cukes for this batch and halved lengthwise.

  2. Remove skin from onion, cut in half from pole to pole. Cut halves into thin slices. I used one medium Vidalia for this batch.

  3. In a large bowl combine equal parts vinegar and water, about half as much sugar, and a pinch of salt. Wisk together to dissolve sugar. Taste and add more sugar and salt as desired. For this batch I ended up using 1 cup water, 1/2 cup apple cider vinegar, 1/2 cup white vinegar, 3/4 cup sugar, and 1 tsp salt.

  4. Add cucumbers and onion to vinegar mixture. Stir to ensure all pieces are coated evenly. Cover and refrigerate at least 2 hours before serving. I like making mine a day ahead of time because the longer it sits the better it gets.
