Pickles, Pickles, and more Pickles!

We have cucumbers coming out of our ears! The CSA has been wonderful these past few weeks. We have more cucumbers than we can handle, so I decided to make my mom's awesome refrigerator pickles. It's the easiest thing and no "hot bath" is required for the canning.

You will need:
4 cups of vinegar
4 cups of sugar
3/4 cup salt
1 1/2 T celary seed
1 1/2 T mustard seed
1 1/2 T tumeric
Cucumbers (6-8)
Onion (2)

Slice cucumbers and 1-2 white onion. Divide into quart size mason jar. Mix together ingredients and whisk until sugar dissolved. Pour over cucumbers. Place jars into refridgerator. Shake daily, should be ready in 6 weeks. Good for 1 year. The mixture is enough for 4 qt. size mason jar.
