I forgot how much I love pickles!
1/2 onion, thinly sliced - I used my mandolin and a plain white onion
2-3 medium cucumbers, thinly sliced again on the mandolin
1 cup water
1 cup cider vinegar
1.5 cups sugar
1 TBS kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon mustard seed
1/2 teaspoon turmeric
1/2 teaspoon celery seed
1/2 teaspoon pickling spice
Combine onion and cucumber slices in a medium size (1qt) Foodsaver canister.
Combine the remaining ingredients bring to a boil for a few minutes .
Pour the hot liquid and spices over the onion and cucumber slices, filling the jar (I had some room left in the jar, about an inch or so). Allow the pickles to cool to room temperature, then vacuum seal and park in the fridge.
I just tried mine after 5 days and they are great! I imagine they'll only get better with time.
Note: since you're slicing these cucumbers thin, they won't be super crispy like the garlic dill recipe.
