A couple pinches of salt
In pan, combine sugar, salt, vinegar and 2 eggs (beat the eggs first before adding to pan.) Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly until mixture begins to come to a boil.
Remove from heat and let cool. Place in refrigerator for at least a few hours. (Can easily be made the day before Thanksgiving)
Peel the cucumbers. Once peeled, score them. (Run a fork down the length of the cucumber until you’ve covered the whole cucumber. Then cut the cucumbers into thin slices.
