Can you freeze cucumbers?

I just thought I'd share that I made some tabouli and the recipe made a huge amount. I couldn't eat all of it so I thought I wonder how it would be if I froze it. I put it in individual serving containers and tried it, thinking it would probably turn to mush. But I was very surprised! It froze beautifully. It was not mushy at all, in fact when defrosted the cucumbers were still nice and crunchy. :)

Freezing cucumbers will result in a mushy, very watery product. The best way to preserve cucumbers is to make pickles.

Can I go through the process of pickle/brine preserving, and not add the sugar and still get a crisp cuke wedge? Onion is OK, just gotta avoid the sugar and spices. And will I get the cucumber taste???

I make freezer pickles! There are lots of good recipes on the internet, just pick the one that suits you. Most state that the pickles are good for 3 months, but I've opened packages from last summer, and they were still crisp and good.
