Sweet Cucumber Pickles. Basking in Summer Sun By Slow Down Molasses.

Sweet Cucumber Pickles


I’ve been up to my ears in cucumbers these past few weeks. What to do when life throws you cukes?

Make pickles!

This is one of the easiest and most delicious recipes for pickles I have ever tried. The balance of vinegar and sugar is just right.

Eat the pickles as is or serve alongside smoked salmon, cheese, or cold meats. The pickles are also wonderful in Asian style rice bowls and in salads.
