  • Liquid:
  • 6 cups cucumbers, sliced
  • 1 cup green pepper, sliced
  • 1 cup onion, sliced
  • 1 cup cider vinegar
  • 2 cup white sugar
  • 1 tsp celery seed
  • 2 Tablespoon salt

Step 1

Slice the veggies into 2 quart jars, I like to make layers of them: you can leave out the onions and peppers, if you want, but they are so good! Mix your other ingredients in a large measuring cup, stir well.

The sugar will not be dissolved yet. Pour over sliced vegetables, evenly in each jar. You will finish filling the jars with cold tap water. I shake the jar a few times during the 24 hrs to mix. No need to cook it, ready to eat in 24 hours.

Taste best if eaten within a week or two, but I like to add tomato wedges or slices to this liquid for overnight, when it is close to empty of veggies, use the next day, unbelievable with sandwiches

I have also pickled hot peppers using a batch of this same liquid~They are delicious!
