Delicious Freezer Cucumber Salad Recipe

On one Sunday every month I like to get busy in my kitchen preparing a variety of freezer meals and goodies for us to use at a later date. During the Summer and Fall months when I am trying to use up all of the cucumbers from our backyard garden...this is one recipe that I turn to.

Homemade Freezer Cucumber Salad Recipe

4 cups thinly sliced cucumbers
2 cups onions, finely chopped
4 tsp. salt
1 to 2 tbsp. water
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup white vinegar
1 tsp. fresh dill, chopped
1/4 tsp. celery seed

Mix together the cucumbers and onions. Add in the salt and water, stir to combine. Cover bowl and let stand for 2 full hours.In a large saucepan combine together the granulated sugar and vinegar; bring to a rapid boil, turn off heat and let cool to room temperature.Drain water from the cucumbers once 2 full hours have passed. Add the sugar and vinegar mixture to the cucumbers tossing to coat. Gently stir in the chopped fresh dill and celery seed.

Spoon the cucumber salad into freezer containers, making sure that you add some of the liquid to each container, filling each container within 3/4" from the top. Place lids on containers, label and freeze. Will keep for up to 3 months if properly frozen.
