Summertime Sweet Refrigerator Pickles

What you need

2 pounds pickling cucumbers
1/4 cup salt
2 cups white sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground turmeric
1 teaspoon mustard seed
2 cups apple cider vinegar
2 small sweet onions
2 one-quart glass jars with lids

How to prepare

In a small saucepan at medium-high heat, combine cider vinegar, salt, sugar, turmeric and mustard seed. Bring to a boil and let cook for 5 more minutes.

Scrub cucumbers in warm water and cut into spears or chunks. Coarsely chop onions. Loosely pack the vegetables in clean one-quart canning jars. Pour the boiled brine over the vegetables in the container. Top off with water to cover pickles. Close the jars and store in the refrigerator for up to one month. Always keep refrigerated.
