She continued to tell me that they come out nice and crispy. This truly intrigued me ... I had to try it out for myself! I took them out of the freezer few days later to try them and to my surprise, they were crispy! How could I doubt the Guru? I pulled another container out two weeks later ... still crispy!
This makes a nice cucumber salad that is ready to serve once you have it thawed. It's a little sweeter that I usually like my cucumber salads but it's still delicious and a great way to save cucumbers when you have an abundance!

How to Freeze Cucumbers
Sliced Cucumbers (amount varies depending on your size of cucumbers)
1 medium onion, sliced
1 c sugar
1/2 c vinegar
1 T chopped dill
Layer cucumbers and onions with salt and refrigerate for 2 hours. Drain and rinse so they aren't too salty.
Mix cucumbers and onions with sugar, vinegar and dill. Refrigerate again until the brine develops, about 3 hours.
Freeze in a tightly covered container making sure that the cucumbers are completely covered in the brine.
Wait at least a week before defrosting and eating and make sure you defrost them in the refrigerator.
