Quick Pickles

These pickles are easy and sooooo delicious! They'll keep for up to a year in the fridge in a container.

~ 5 lbs. (little) dill cucumbers
~ 1 red pepper, chopped fine
~ 1 large white onion, chopped fine

Put these ingredients into an ice cream bucket or container of your choosing.

~ 4 c. sugar
~ 2 c. vinegar
~ 2 Tbsp. pickling salt
~ 1 tsp. celery salt
~ 1 tsp. mustard seed
~ 1 tsp. turmeric

Bring brine to a boil. Pour over the cucumber mixture. Mix. Cool completely before putting the lid on. Refridgerate for about a week before eating. Soooooo good!! Try it!
