Cucumber Chips (Fresh Sweet Pickles)
½ cup apple juice concentrate
2 tablespoons lemon juice
2 cloves garlic, crushed
1 tablespoon honey
1½ teaspoons salt
½ teaspoon dill weed
½ teaspoon onion powder
1 medium cucumber
1. Place all ingredients except cucumber in a large skillet and bring to a boil. Meanwhile, slice the cucumber in whole, round slices, skin included. Add to the boiling juice, cover, and bring to a boil. Remove cover and stir, then cover again and leave on heat for about 30 seconds more. Don’t overcook.
2. Remove from heat and let sit uncovered for 5 minutes. Place in a covered storage container and chill for several hours or overnight.
3. Drain off the liquid and use chilled Cucumber Chips in burgers and sandwiches.
Tip: Liquid can be made into a delicious salad dressing. Just place in blender with ½ cup raw cashew nuts or 2 tablespoons sesame tahini. Blend smooth. Good on tossed salad or as a dressing for coleslaw.
