Sweet Cucumber Pickles
There is nothing better than a sweet pickle made from the garden. All it takes is a bumper crop of cucumbers, some onions and a quick an easy vinegar sauce.
My Mom just loved sweet pickles and she ate them on every kind of sandwich. My taste goes more to the Kosher pickle. As they say though it would be a boring world if everyone was the same.
Put these on the relish tray for your party or picnic and they wont last long. So easy to make you will wonder why you bought them in the store all these years.
