Can you freeze cucumbers?
By Russell S
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. :)

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.

Can I freeze cucumbers for a short period of time minus the brain?

Why do you have to add sugar? Will this not make the cucumbers too sweet?
I was just wondering why you have to add onions to the brine. Does this not change the taste of the cucumbers?
I can't use sugar, sugar feeds cancer. I have cancer and a lot of cucumbers.

After freezing the pickles, how long will they keep in the freezer? How do I thaw them out for eating? Thank you.
