Mom's Vinegar Cucumbers
request: i'm seeking a recipe i used to know as "refrigerator cukes" 
("mary 
meyer's refrigerator cukes" to be exact). it started out like the 
recipe below with using salt to leech the water out of the cukes, but 
after that, they were mixed with sugar and some spices and minced red 
pepper, placed in jars and then refrigerated. 
any help will be greatly appreciated. 
 
 
 
medium to large ripe cucumbers - 3 to 4 
table salt - 1 cup (this is not a typo) 
white vinegar - enough to cover sliced cukes 
salt & pepper to taste 
 
peel the cucumbers. slice them thinly (the slicer side of a square grater 
works well for this) into a fairly large mixing bowl (preferably one with 
a cover). mix in 1 cup salt, cover, and let sit at room temp until 
cucumbers become soft and water has leached out of them (should take about 
1/2 hour). *rinse them well under cold water*, until they are no longer 
unbearably salty. the slices will still have a lightly salted flavor. 
cover with white vinegar; add salt & pepper based on your preference for 
each. cover bowl and place in refrigerator; chill at least two hours (i 
prefer an afternoon). 
 
serve cold as a side item; don't bother to drain the vinegar. just spoon 
them straight out of the bowl -- mouth-puckering heaven! we never have 
enough of these.
