Polish Cucumbers

Cucumbers are plentiful this time of year. We were blessed with a few from the garden of a priest friend. This recipe comes from an old Polish cookbook that I inherited from my mother-in-law. They are cucumbers with sour cream, salt, pepper, sugar and vinegar. I do not like mine too sweet, so I reduced the sugar from the original recipe.


2 large cucumbers
1 quart water, boiling
1/2 cup sour cream
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon sugar
1 dash pepper
2 tablespoons vinegar


1. Peel cucumbers and run a fork down them lengthwise.

2. Slice thinly on a mandolin.

3. Cover cucumbers with boiling water and let stand for 10 minutes. Drain and plunge into cold water. Drain and refrigerate for 30 minutes.

4. Mix sour cream with salt, sugar, pepper and vinegar. Adjust flavor as necessary. Mix into chilled cucumbers. Serve cold.
