Can You Freeze Cucumbers to Pickle Later?

Can you freeze sliced cucumbers to pickle at a later date?

Anything with moisture content is going to change structure when the cells freeze. When fall comes and we get the first freeze, that is enough to begin the mush process. That is why to put zucchini in the freezer for future use in baking, you must shred it and then expect more moisture to 'press out' to use in a recipe. All frozen veggies will react according to their water content. That is why it is best to bake with the product then freeze it instead of the ingredients.

Sorry but no because they become limp/mushy due to their natural water content whether sliced or whole.
