My son gave me a large bucket of them, i am not good at making pickles as they turn soft.
But what else can i do with them? I don`t want them to go to waste.
These pickles are great & will stay crispy! No canning required!

This is a great way to use cucumbers and onions from the garden. Here in Upstate New York, we have an abundance of cucumbers.

And the current upsets your boat
Don't think of things that might have been
Just lay on your back and float

If you have never made gazpacho now is the time to try it. This is a great summer soup that you serve cold. Some people dice all the vegetables and then puree them. What a waste. Leave them diced. The crunch is a good thing.
Thank you all for the great recipes.I don`t know which one to try first as they all sound good.
