I just tried the first jar of these pickles, and they are delicious! So here is the recipe!
cucumbers sliced thin
half the quantity of cucumbers in thinly sliced onions.
a couple of red peppers, as many as you want to add color.
Mix cucumbers, onions, and peppers in a bowl with salt. Let stand for 2 hours. Drain.
Combine vinegar and water and sugar in these proportions:
2 vinegar 2 water 1.5 sugar
Add mustard seed and celery seed in equal proportions and half as much tumeric
Bring to a boil.
In the hot sterilized jars add two garlic cloves, one grape leaf, pack full of cucumber/onion/pepper mix, fill with the boiling vinegar mixture, leaving 1/4 inch head room, then put in a canning bath for ten minutes.
These are SO GOOD. These should become a yearly standard.
