Freezing is a plus Dawgluver.

I like cukes but I do have my limits. Being able to freeze them would be great.

How does it effect texture?

I believe any reply subscribes you to a thread.

Seems to be that way for me.

Either way it's six to one and a half dozen to another.

As long as I can find it again is all I ask.

Zagut, I find as long as I salt, let them sit for a bit, drain, and rinse, they stay nice and crunchy after defrosting.

That's good to know Dawgluver. Thanks.
I'll give it a try and see if it works for me.
I can't think of a way to enjoy soggy/mushy cukes unless they were in a soup.

Oh, How thin?

Quarter,
Nickle,
Penny,
Dime?

Same thickness with the onions and peppers?

I use a mandolin on a very thin setting. Probably 1/8th inch or less. I like my onions thinly sliced too. Peppers can be diced or thinly sliced.

A bit of mustard seed or celery seed is nice in the syrup, though not authentic Thai.

Neighbors are bringing lots of cucumbers to our house. I just made a batch of my favorites.

2 cups of sugar
1 cup vinegar
1/4 cup water
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1 large cucumber
1 small onion
Peel and slice cucumber and mix with the sliced onion. Mix the sugar, vinegar, water, salt and pepper and pour mixture over the cucumbers and onions. Stir well and refrigerate several hours or overnight.

Although I prefer Persian cukes for this, I'm sure it will work just fine.

1/4 cup rice vinegar
4 teaspoons sugar
1 teaspoon soy sauce
1 teaspoon fish sauce
1/2 teaspoon dried crushed red pepper
2 small English hothouse cucumbers

I also put onions in as well.
