Why I Love This Recipe

My grandma used to make these pickles every year and they are a family favourite. Growing up, I remember my mom making them and having the pail full of sliced cucumbers and onions soaking in ice and salt. I'm so blessed to be able to make a batch with my daughter this summer.

Ingredients You'll Need

1 gallon cucumbers, washed and sliced
8 onions, peeled and sliced in rings
1/2 cup pickling salt
10 trays ice cubes (approx)
4-1/2 cups white sugar
5 cups white vinegar
1/2 tsp turmeric
2 tsp mustard seed
1 tsp celery seed


Combine cucumbers, onions, salt, and ice. Let sit for 3 hours, stirring occasionally.

In a large pot combine white sugar, white vinegar, turmeric, mustard seed, and celery seed. Bring to a boil.

Drain vegetables. Add to brine.

Cook over medium heat until boiling.

Pack into hot sterilized jars.
