Easy Pickled Cucumber Rounds

When the garden starts producing and the cucumbers are prolific, I make this recipe to keep in the refrigerator. It’s perfect with any meal and especially great with sandwiches and salads.

Southerners like sweet pickles with the summer bounty from the garden. I gave a jar to my neighbor telling him it would last about a week and a half in the refrigerator. He later told me I was wrong. They only lasted a day. Keep this recipe going all summer and you will use up that bounty of cucumbers plus make a few neighbors happy. Enjoy!
