      Today's entry is short and to the point. Donna Mae does not mess around; she educates us and BAM, she's out of there. This may be useful if you've discovered wild cucumbers on your property and you're not quite sure what to do with them. Get your peanut butter and pregnant wife and prepare yourself for:

Donna Mae's Delicious Dill Pickles

1 large onion, diced
2 tablespoons salt
2 cups sugar
1 cup vinegar
1 teaspoon celery salt

Mix ingredients well. Do NOT heat the liquid.

In large jar, slice 7 cups of cucumbers.
Pour liquid over all.
Place some fresh dill on top.
Cover and refrigerate.

They are ready to eat after a few days.

      See what I mean? Now you can put that truckload of cucumbers you won at the tractor pull to good use. Pickles are versatile, universal and they make a good garnish for sandwiches. Got pickles?
      See you next week!
