  1. Ingredients

    18 cucumbers (these are from my garden)
    1 cup kosher salt
    8 cups cider vinegar
    8 cups sugar
    6 large yellow onion
    4 tablespoons yellow mustard seed
    2 tablespoon celery seed
    2 tablespoon turmeric
    2 tablespoon coarsely cracked black pepper


    Sliced up all the cucumbers and put in 2 large bowls (my biggest was to small)

    Dissolve the salt in a large pot with 6 quarts of water.

    Once the salt is dissolved, add the cup up pieces and

    You can use kosher salt or pickling salt. Don’t use iodized table salt.

    Add sliced cucumbers to salt water mixer and cover. Put it in the fridge overnight.

    Thanks for the post !  Those pickles look great!  And from your garden, no less!  Up here, I can't grow anything but bitter cucumbers [​IMG] so I gave it up after 5-6 years of tweaking and heartbreak.
