Freezer Cucumber Pickles Recipe

When I first started to make these crunchy and satisfying pickles, I wasn't sure if freezing cucumbers would actually work. To my surprise, they came out perfect! Now I make enough to take them to picnics or give as gifts to friends and neighbors. —Connie Goense, Pembroke Pine, Florida

"Just for the record , the recipe does not say anything about being best if used in 6 weeks of freezing... It says 6 MONTHS.;

and then after they are thawed to use them within 2 weeks !
It is a good recipe. Fast and very easy to make."

"I didn't personally make these, but a friend did. They are incredible. She is nervous when it comes to canning, so this was perfect for her. She did the recipe exactly as it's stated."

"I was skeptical when I first saw this recipe, but decided to give it a try. They are soooo good!!!! Crispy and full of flavor!!! I didn't divide anything, just used big bowls. Yes, you can keep them in the freezer longer than 6 weeks, but they won't last that long."

"5 stars for taste but the recipe "as is" only does about 5-6 pints. All in all a good freezer pickle."
