Ingredients

Directions

Slice the cucumbers 1/4-inch thick and discard the ends. Set the sliced cucumber into a colander. Then place the colander into an empty bowl that will allow space for drainage between the colander and the bowl. Mix the cucumber slices with 2 teaspoons salt, and then place them in the fridge to drain for 12 hours or overnight. The salt will draw out excess moisture from the cucumbers so that your pickling solution doesn't get watered down with the natural juices of the cucumber.

Twelve hours later, or simply the next day, you want to toast your mustard seeds, coriander seeds, celery seeds and turmeric. Just place them in a small saute pan over medium heat, moving them around in the pan until you get the aroma of the spices. Remove the spices from the pan and set aside.

Thinly slice the Vidalia onion and set aside

Take the cucumbers out of the colander and place them in medium bowl. Mix the onions in with the cucumbers. Toss the cucumbers and onions with the toasted spices.

In a small pot, bring the vinegar, sugar and remaining 1/4 cup salt to a boil. Pour the hot vinegar liquid over the cucumbers, onions and spices, and let sit until the liquid comes to room temperature.

Once at room temperature, they are ready for the refrigerator and will be ready to eat the next day. Will keep refrigerated for weeks once they're pickled!
