Refrigerator Pickles

My Grandma Lorraine always used to make Refrigerator Pickles. There are easy to make and are the perfect thing to keep in your refrigerator to pick at when you need a little snack. Here's how it's done.

Buy 2 qts small pickles/cucumbers at the farmers market. Do not peel them, but wash them thoroughly. Slice them thinly (a mandolin works well).

In a large bowl, mix the cucumbers with 1 thinly sliced onion (we use the mandolin for this as well) and 2 tsp salt. Cover and let stand for 2 hours. Do not skip this step.

Then, mix 1 1/2 c. sugar and 1/2 c. white vinegar. Put pickle mixture in canning jars. Then add the sugar/vinegar mixture to cover. Add in some celery seed and dill seed to taste (not much, maybe 1/4 tsp of each or so to start).
Refrigerate and eat as desired. Enjoy!
