How to make it

  • In a large glass or stainless steel bowl, combine the sliced cucumbers, onions and salt. Let the mixture stand for 3 hours, then pour it into a colander to drain. Rinse with cold water, then drain again.
  • In a 8 to 10 quart saucepan, combine the vinegar, sugar, turmeric, mustard seed, celery seed and cayenne pepper.
  • Bring to a boil and add the drained cucumber and onion slices. Reduce heat to low, bring just to a simmer and simmer for 2 minutes. Avoid boiling to prevent the cucumber slices from softening too much. They should remain crisp.
  • Cool the pickles you want to serve immediately and pack the rest in hot sterilized jars for later.
