"As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy, and to make plans."--Ernest Hemingway

5 large cucumbers peeled and sliced water apple cider vinegar Salt Pepper 2 Tbs sugar
Peel and slice cucumbers. Place in a large bowl. Add enough cold water & Vinegar to cover the cucumbers. May try about 1/4 cup vinegar to every cup water. Sprinkle with salt about 1-2 tsp and pepper to season. Add sugar(about 2-3 Tbsp) to taste. Let Marinate at least 2 hours before serving.
I am not sure what mom's water to vinegar proportions were. I guess you can choose the amount of vinegar for your taste. This recipe needs to be "fiddled" with sometimes ---- adjusting sugar, salt, pepper, vinegar.
