cucumber recipe from Scotty and Erin

here's our basic cucumber recipe that we love, love, love. it's wonderful along with hot freshly made dumplings with lots of butter and salt!

2 medium cucumbers
1/3 cup cider vinegar
1/3 cup water
2 tablespoons sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
chopped fresh dill
sour cream

peel and slice the cucumbers very very thinly and place in a glass bowl. mix vinegar, water, sugar, salt and pepper and pour over cucumbers. stir well. cover and refrigerate at least 4 hours - more is better! drain most of the liquid off the cucumbers. add dill and sour cream. stir it up and enjoy. you can also omit the sour cream if you prefer it not to be creamy.
