This is how my husband's grandma used to make them.  She served them everyday at lunch and dinner:


1 lb pickling cucumbers sliced into chips

1 onion halved and sliced thin

1 tbsp kosher salt

1 cup cider vinegar

3/4 cup sugar

1/2 tsp mustard seeds

1/4 tsp celery seeds

1/8 tsp ground turmeric


Stir cucumbers, onion, and salt in colander over the sink, let sit for 1 hour.  

Bring vinegar, sugar, mustard seeds, celery seeds, and turmeric to boil in big pot.  Turn down heat to low and press cucumbers and onion into liquid.  Cover and cook for 5 minutes.

Pour into glass bowl and refrigerate for 2 hours.

A friend kept these all the time..... so easy!


Microwave Pickles


  • 1 medium cucumber, thinly sliced
  • 2 small onions, thinly sliced
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon celery seed
  • 1/2 teaspoon mustard seed


  • In a large microwave-safe bowl, combine all of the ingredients. Microwave, uncovered, on high for 3 minutes; stir. Cook 2-3 minutes longer or until mixture is bubbly and cucumbers and onions are crisp-tender.
  • Cover and refrigerate for at least 4 hours. Serve with a slotted spoon.

I would use 1 tsp Bell Pickling Spice.  (usually with canning equipment in a store)
