This is one of my favorites from childhood. Mother (age 86) always
made it without sugar and no salt or pepper. I peel the cucumber(s),
slice them, put them in a bowl with regular white vinegar and water,
then stick them in the fridge to cool. You need to dilute the vinegar
with water so they aren't to sour tasting.
