Homemade Danish Cucumbers

Original Old Fashioned Danish Cucumbers

It’s a CLASSIC family favorite that sings of summer and a fabulous way to use up those cucumbers. 

Add in some tangy vinegar and spices, and it makes it all delish and wonderful.

This is an amazingly fresh, crisp and flavorful dill and cucumber combination, that is so refreshing and unique; you’ll find yourself making it over and over again.

As a terrific accompaniment to a sandwich, burger, or to eat all on it’s own as a snack.
