Someone gave us this recipe and dh loves it. He just brought home enough cucumbers and onions for 2 batches from the farmer's market so I thought I'd share the recipe while it's fresh in my head.
7 cups thinly sliced cucumber 1 cup thinly sliced onion (I just put the whole onion, or in today's case, onion and a half) 1/2 tsp whole celery seed 1 tbs salt (I use coarse sea salt) 2 cups sugar 1 cup vinegar
combine everything and refrigerate. It will look like there isn't enough liquid but there is. Trust me. Stir every day and eat it after 4 days.
Wash: "A man walks down the street in that hat, people know he's not afraid of anything." Jayne: "Da*n straight."
Apply pickles liberally to turkey sandwiches, salami sandwiches, meatloaf sandwiches, etc. or just eat them straight out of the bowl. These pickles are a crunchy comfort food for me. They make a sandwich incredible.
