We have been blessed with cucumbers so I found my favorite cucumber recipe and decided we should enjoy it once again. It is especially good when the cucumbers are sliced paper thin. The recipe is from this cookbook I purchased years ago when my husband and I stayed in Germany and Austria for five weeks. Here is the recipe:
1 or 2 ripe firm cucumbers, SALT, equal parts oil and vinegar (about a 1 1/2 Tablespoons each), chopped fresh sprig of dill
Test the cucumber to see that it is not bitter. Slice paper thin. Sprinkle with salt and allow to stand, 20 minutes, then pour off the juice that has been made ~~THIS Makes them crisp. Season and mix with the oil and vinegar and chopped fresh dill. ENJOY! “I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food.” (Genesis 1:29).
