Marinated Cucumbers

Recipe inspired by Megan and Keifer’s, Jackson, Mississippi


8-10 cucumbers

1 large onion, sliced thin

4 cups white vinegar

4 cups water

3/4 cup sugar

1 tablespoon dried basil


Wash and stripe cucumbers. Slice 1/4-inch thick and mix with sliced onion. Combine vinegar, water, and sugar and stir until sugar is dissolved. Pour mixture over cucumbers and onions, then sprinkle basil on top. Make sure that liquid covers all cucumbers, and marinate at least overnight.

Serves approximately 12.

(This makes a HUGE amount, so I would cut it in half at least.)
