Refrigerator Pickles

I missed last week's recipe. Sorry... But here is something good for summer and the ones who have gardens

8 cups cucumbers, ends cut, thinly sliced. Do not peel
1 1/2 cup thinly sliced onion
1/2 cup thinly sliced green pepper

2 cups white vinegar
2 cups sugar
1 tbsp salt ( I do use a very coarse kosher salt for this)
1 tbsp celery seed
1 1/2 tsp mustard seed

In large bowl, place cucumber, onion and pepper.

Place vinegar, sugar, salt, celery seed and mustard seed in pot. Heat to a boil, stirring often. Boil for three minutes.

Pour over the cucumber mixture. Cool. Put in clean jars, refrigerate and let sit for 3 to 4 days. This will keep in the refrigerator for 2 months.

Mine don't last that long in the house!

Try it, they are good, something different. I won't waste a good cucumber!
