Mrs. Naverud’s Freezer Pickles.
2 cups sugar
1 3/4 white vinegar
1/4 cup pickling salt
Heat until dissolved, let stand 20-40 minutes
Peel and slice somewhat thinly (thicker than the shredder)
12 cucs, 2 to 3 inches in diameter
Seed and de-vein and cut into thin strips
2 large bell peppers
Slice and seperate
2 large onions
Mix the veggies well with the liquid.
Pack in plastic freezer boxes and freeze.
This is a useful way to store extra cucs. The thawed and drained
product is very fresh tasting (rather than pickle-y) and is a treat in
the off season. My mother knew the very elderly Mrs. Naverud years ago,
a kindly and lovely lady, and an old farm wife.
