REVIEW: 5 star recipe rating
These turn bright red and appear to be apple rings.People are always surprised to hear they are made from cucumbers. A little time consuming to make but worth it.Plus it uses up your large cucumbers at the end of the season. A wonderful pickle to serve during the holidays.
