    In a gallon Jar, slice onions, as many as you like, slice cucumbers(unpeeled).Mix together

    4 cups sugar
    4cups vinegar (I use white 5%)
    1/2 cup canning salt
    1 1/2 teas tumeric, celery seed, mustard seek

    Pour over cucumbers and onions, let stand about 2 days before eating. Stir every day, keep covered and add more cucumbers and onion as you use. I keep this going all summer. The pickles stay crisp

    duckydo - Instead of the salt and spices can you just use pickling spices.

    A recipe you will not believe Dill pickles turned Sweet.

    Purchase 1 jar Kosher whole dill or Dill pickles, or whatever dill you like.
    Drain, rinse pickles, cut in chunks

    In jar put 1 1/2 c sugar, 1/2 c vinegar, 1 T pickle spice, add chunks, shake until sugar is pretty much dissolved. Once a day for seven days shake real good, on the 8th day eat. They are not as good on the 7th day, something magical about the 8th day. I made these for a friend, a guy who does not like sweet pickles, I did not tell him they were sweet, he now likes only these.

    find somewhere that sells Mt Olive *or any name brand Sour pickles. Get a gallon jar. Drain, slice thinly..salad shooter works best. drain..squeeze, use paper towels to soak out any excess fluid. Put back in cleaned jar..pour 5 lbs of sugar on top. Let sit until all sugar is absorbed by the pickles..turn jar often. Once the sugar is all dissolved..put in smaller containers and store in the fridge.

    9 cups thin sliced(like paper) unpeeled cucumbers (mandalin is used)
    1 cup sliced onion (using the mandalin, too)
    2 cups white sugar
    1 cup apple cider vinegar
    1 Tablespoon celery seed
    1-2 Tablespoons regular salt
    Place in Large stew pan or large bowl. Place items in order as noted. Let set -- liquid will appear and stir every once in a while. When enough liquid, place cuckes than liquid to cover, and keep refrigerated. Let set for day or two. Use as salad, or on hamburgers. Delicious. We really love these. Delicious

    Don't have a pickle recipe but my DMIL has made a German cucumber salad with seven seas Italian dressing mix made as directed and a tsp sugar mixed in. Cover paper thin cut cucumber slices with dressing and sit for at least a half hour before serving. Everyone loves this.

    Duckydo's recipe brought back fond memories. My grandmother used this recipe......her's was called "Summer Pickles." They were so good and a great side dish on a warm day.

    Countertop pickles:

    basic brine -- bring to a boil then cool to room temp to use
    1 cup white vinegar
    3 cups water
    1 tablespoon canning salt
    1 teaspoon sugar

    Pack washed whole cukes, peeled garlic cloves to taste, and a head or two of dill in a jar and pour in enough brine to cover completely. Don't fill to the top as the level of liquid may rise as the pickles cure. You may need to place a weight or sealed container of water on top of the pickles to hold them under the surface of the brine. Leave these out on the countertop until the brine has penetrated to the center of the cukes (sampling them every day is half the fun). This will take 3-4 days for small pickles, somewhat longer for very large ones. When thoroughly pickled, store in the 'fridge. They keep for a looooong time once refrigerated, months. My mother used to can them this way, but I must warn you that there is not enough vinegar in this recipe to maintain the acidity level to assure they are safe for canning. I sometimes add mixed pickling spices or other spices or onions to each batch for variation.
