More Cukes



The cucumbers keep coming. Alas, so must the recipes. This one, based on a recipe from the book The Frugal Gourmet, "will become a family favorite, I promise!" says book's author Jeff Smith.

He's right. It has.

CUCUMBER SALAD

2 cucumbers, peeled and sliced thin

1/2 yellow onion, peeled and sliced thin

3/4 c. sugar

1/2 c. water

1 c. white vinegar

1/2 T. dried dill

Prepare the cucumber and onion and combine in a bowl. Set aside. Put sugar, water, vinegar, and dill in small saucepan. Bring to a boil. Pour liquid over vegetables, stir gently, and refrigerate until you're ready to eat.

I'll have to try this. Sounds great.
By the way, a new neighbor from Russia was looking for recipes, and I said, "Ahh, you must visit the castle." She has given me a recipe for Borsche (spelling?) If I succeed, I'll pass it on.:)

Is borscht beet soup? I'm not sure I've ever actually eaten a beet . . . They seem a little scary. You'll have to let us know if it's any good, Jana.

I've had this before and love it, but have never made it. Maybe now I will! Thanks.
