Baked Cucumbers



2 cucumbers

2 Tbsp rice or white wine vinegar

½ tsp salt

½ tsp sugar

1 Tbsp sliced green onion

2 Tbsp butter

½ tsp dried basil

1 Tbsp chopped parsley (optional)


Slice cucumbers in half and remove seeds with a spoon. Slice into 1/8 inch slices.

Toss cucumbers slices with vinegar, salt, and sugar and let rest for an hour. Drain and pat dry.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Place cucumbers, green onion, butter and basil in a small baking dish.

Bake for about an hour stirring 2 or 3 times.

Serve warm with chopped parsley.

NOTE: There were several variations, one with reduced cream that sounded delicious, and another with a mornay sauce.
