INSTRUCTIONS
  • Slice your cucumbers and onions paper thin and set them aside.
  • In a pot, combine your sugar, vinegar, and seasonings.
  • Heat while stirring continuously being careful not to let it boil. You only want to melt the sugar thoroughly.

  • Next, place a layer of cucumbers in the pan, then add a layer of onions, and sprinkle with salt. Add another of layer of cucumbers, another layer of onions, and sprinkle with salt. Repeat this until all of your cucumbers and onions have been used.
  • Put the lid on the pan and set it in the refrigerator overnight.
  • Next day, drain all of the liquid from the cucumber pan.
  • Once thoroughly drained, pour the refrigerated liquid over your cucumbers and stir well.
  • Reseal the pan and refrigerate for 24 hours more.
  • After 24 hours, put the pickles into a glass quart jar and pour the liquid on top of them and close the lid.
  • Store them in the refrigerator.

Notes

Mrs. Minnie's recipe says they'll keep in the refrigerator for up to one year. I can't verify this since they've never lasted that long at my house!
