We love eating cucumbers fresh from the garden.  When we have extra, I usually slice them thin and  freeze them. This is our favorite recipe for freezer cucumbers. It is so easy to do. 

2 qts. thinly sliced cucumbers
1 lg. onion, sliced
1 1/2 tbsp. salt
1 c. oil
1 c. vinegar
1 c. sugar
1 tsp. dill seed
Mix cucumbers, onions and salt in large bowl; let stand for 2 hours. Rinse them under running water and then drain them well. Pack in plastic freezer containers. Leave 1 inch from top, mix oil, vinegar, sugar and dill seed together. Pour mixture over pickles in containers to cover. Seal and freeze.

What are your favorite recipes for making pickles?
