Step 1

Toss sliced cucumbers, salt and onion in colander set over a bowl. Let stand one hour. Discard drained liquid.

Bring vinegar, sugar, mustard seeds, celery seeds and turmeric to boil in a large saucepan. Reduce heat to low, add cucumbers and onions, press to submerge in liquid. Cover and cook until cucumbers turn a dullish olive-brown color, about 5 minutes.

Transfer entire pan contents to a glass bowl. Refrigerate, uncovered, at least two hours before serving. (Pickles can be refrigerated in covered container for up to two weeks.)
