    Rating: *****

    List of Ingredients

    2 1/2 pounds pickling cucumbers -- or regular cucumbers
    1 medium white onion -- thinly sliced
    2 tablespoons salt
    8 cups ice cubes
    4 cups sugar
    2 cups cider vinegar -- 5 percent acidity


    Cut ends from cucumbers; then cut cucumbers into 1/8-inch thick slices. Mix cucumbers, onion, and salt in a large bowl; cover mixture with ice cubes and refrigerate for 2 to 3 hours.

    Drain off water and discard unmelted ice cubes; do not rinse vegetables. Pack cucumber and onion slices into 3 pint freezer jars or freezer containers, leaving 1/2-inch headspace.

    In a 2-quart pan, mix sugar and vinegar; bring to a boil, stirring until sugar is dissolved. Pour just enough hot syrup over cucumbers to cover. Apply lids; let cool. To allow flavor to develop, freeze pickles at least 1 week before serving. To thaw, let stand in refrigerator for at least 8 hour. Makes 3 pints.

    Freeze up to 6 months in freezer.
