Fried Cucumbers

My dad absolutely loved fried cucumbers.  He would find the biggest one he could that had started to turn yellow and bring it in for mom to fry.  We all loved them.  Don't use those little sissy cucumbers, it needs to be at least a foot long and as big around as the end of a baseball bat.

Number of servings will depend on the size of your cucumbers
