Sweet Hot Marinated Cucumbers- great summer side dish or snack!
(originally made 7/26/2007)
Good morning. My uncle's garden has gone into overdrive, and he's started distributing cukes to everyone he sees :) I came home with 6 last night. I had been flipping through veggie recipes in anticipation of a farm stand trip this weekend, found this one. Not sure of the source, I photocopied it from a cookbook I got at the library.
Sweet Hot Marinated Cucumbers
2 small cucumbers
2T red wine vinegar (I used apple cider vinegar)
Dash of dried crushed red pepper
Peel cucumbers if desired (I didn't). Slice into 1/8" slices. Place sugar and remaining ingredients into small bowl (I used a canning jar), stir well. Add cucumber slices. Cover and chill up to 1 hour. The longer they are chilled, the hotter the flavor.
