(by Aunt Janie [McNevich] Baronowski)
2 cucumbers (washed and sliced into coin shaped pieces)
1 onion (sliced crossways--separate into rings, and slice rings in half)
1 TBSP salt
1/2 TBSP mustard seed
1/2 TBSP celery seed
1/2 TBSP turmeric
1/2 cup white vinegar
3/4 cup white sugar
In a microwave safe bowl add salt, mustard seed, celery seed, turmeric,
white vinegar and white sugar--stir until mixed. Add cucumber slices and
sliced onions--stir. Cover with a piece of Saran Wrap--microwave on high for
8 minutes (stopping every 2 minutes to stir them). Pour the whole mixture
into a large glass jar--put the lid on and let it sit on the counter until room
temperature, then refrigerate until cold. You can eat them the next day. You
MUST use a glass jar--any other container will get stains.
