    My mom makes this reciepe, but she uses zucchini instead, but it still might be good with cucumbers

    1 Cucumber

    1 Red Onion

    Bow Tie Pasta (As much as you want)

    Mozzarella Cheese (Again, As Much as You want)

    Cook in pan!

    Cook the Bow tie pasta seperately so it gets soft then add to other ingredients, put mozzarella cheese in last!

    Peel skin from cucumbers and slice off ends. Slice crosswise in very thin slices. Marinate in mixture of remaining ingredients. Chill in the marinade an hour or longer (even overnight).

    Cucumbers are not meant to be cooked. Why not use a nice oil and vinegar marinade or just use Italian salad dressing. Or...sour cream and throw in herbs and spices or just use french onion chip dip. Ranch will work too!

    cucumbers shouldn't be cooked ...... Buy some more salad! You should never be without lettuce in the house anyways! Salad shouldn't be kept for a "special occasion" ...... slice and eat the cucumber, dipped in salad dressing....

    Never heard of sauted cukes. You could mix it with some sour cream and use it on top of fish.

    German Cucumber recipe


    3-4 medium-sized cucumbers (total weight 500 grams)

    1-2 tomatoes, skinned, cut into pieces

    3 bacon strips, cut into small pieces

    1 onion, coarsely chopped

    1/2 cup water


    1 tablespoons lemon juice

    Pinch sugar

    1 rounded teaspoon corn starch

    1 tablespoon cold water

    1 tablespoon chopped parsley. dill or chervil

    Cut off ends of cucumbers and taste to see if they are bitter. If this is the case, continue cutting away until no longer bitter. Then peel the cucumbers and cut into half lengthwise. Remove the seeds with a spoon and cut into 1-inch pieces. Skin tomatoes and cut into small pieces.

    Fry bacon and strain, to remove crisp brown pieces, (reserve them) before adding the cucumber, onion and tomatoes. Cook for a few minutes. Add the water and cook until done, about 18 minutes. Season with salt, lemon juice and sugar. Thicken the cooking liquid with the corn starch, blended with the water. Add the herbs. Sprinkle the dish with the crisp bacon pieces.

    Freezer Cucumbers

    When I first saw this recipe, I could not imagine how freezing cucumbers would work. But to my surprise they came out perfect! Now I take them to picnics and give some as gifts to friends and neighbors. I promise these are the best pickles you will ever taste.

    4 pounds pickling cucumbers, sliced

    8 cups thinly sliced onions

    1/4 cup salt

    3/4 cup water

    4 cups sugar

    2 cups cider vinegar

    1 T. turmeric

    Combine cucumbers, onions, salt and water in a large bowls. Let stand at room temperature for 2 hours. Add sugar, vinegar and turmeric; stir until sugar dissolves. Pack into 1-pint freezer containers or bags, leaving 1-inch head space. Cover and freeze. I have kept these in the freezer for up to 1 year. Thaw overnight in refrigerator or at room temperature for 4 hours before serving. Yield: 10 pints.

    I always add celery seed to the freezer pickle recipe. Last year I added cauliflower that I had left over in the garden. It was wonderful. I have used zucchini instead of the cukes and the pickles were just as wonderful. Also, you can add 1 clove of garlic per freezer container. These are the very best pickles I have ever eaten. I have frozen them up to 1 year (just used my last zip lock bag full last week

    For dill pickles get rid of the sugar. Add a little extra vinegar and fresh dill. I usually put a dill flower (blossom) in the container, (I use zip-lock bags) with the pickles. I would also add fresh garlic
