Grandma's Cucumber Chips

I've got a super easy recipe for ya today.  I've been eatin' these since I was a kid and anytime I have cucumbers comin' out my ears, a batch of these is always in the fridge.

All you need is vinegar, sugar, and water.  And thinly sliced, peeled cucumbers.  You can adjust the amounts based on how many cucumbers you have, but the vinegar and sugar are always equal parts.

I filled up a 21 cup container with thinly sliced cucumbers.  I used a mandolin to make the slicing quicker.

Once you've got your cucumbers ready, add your vinegar and sugar.  I used 3/4 C apple cider vinegar and 3/4 C sugar.  Then add water until the cucumbers are covered.  That's it.  Throw 'em in the fridge and let 'em soak up all that yummy goodness.

We had them as-is with our clam and oyster dinner, but then a couple nights later, I made Asian-marinated short ribs, so we doctored up the cucs with some spicy chili-garlic sauce.  Mmmmm.  Good stuff.

Just like grandma's.

I have two side-notes.
First of all, is anyone having issues getting their pictures into a post in Blogger?
It's taking me forever to write posts 'cause it will only let me add one picture at a time, if at all.

Second, I don't know if this is a Blogger issue as well, but I noticed a few posts back that I'm not getting all your comments in my email inbox anymore.
Which means I've missed some and didn't notice until after the fact.
And those are the ones I've caught on a fluke.
So if you left a comment and I didn't respond, I'm sorry.
It's happening to people who regularly comment, so it isn't an issue with my email.
Always somethin', right?

Please see my sidebar for the parties I link up to.


  1. Awesome!! I have some cucs I can try this out on. I might add some red pepper flakes too. I haven't had any blogger issues.

  2. Fresh cucumbers are such a favorite of mine and Grandma's recipes never fail do they? Gotta love our wonderful grandmothers everywhere! You have such a pretty blog Mindy! I love visiting!


  3. This looks like a tasty treat. I will definitely try this recipe this weekend!!
    I may make cucumber strips running the full length of the cucumber using the mandolin.


I love and appreciate all your comments. So don't be shy, just say it!
