How to Make Refrigerator Pickles

8 cups
cucumbers, sliced to desired thickness
4 cups
onion, sliced
1
red bell pepper, julienne strips
1
green bell pepper, julienne strips
2 cups
white vinegar
4 cups
water
4 tsp
celery seed
4 tsp
mustard seed
2 cloves
garlic
2 tsp
salt















Preparation:

Wash cucumbers with a vegetable brush to remove any dirt. Peel the cucumbers with a vegetable peeler as desired.  They can be completely peeled, partially peeled (as shown) or the peels can be left on.
Slice the cucumbers to desired thickness.
Julienne cut the red and green peppers and onions.
Mix the cucumber, peppers, and onions together in a large bowl. Add the salt and let stand for one hour. Drain off any excess liquid.
In a medium bowl, combine the water, vinegar, celery seed, mustard seed, and garlic.
Pack the cucumber mixture into nonmetallic containers such as glass jars. The vinegar will react to any container that is made out of metal and will give the pickles and undesireable flavor.
Pour the vinegar mixture in jars until all of the vegetables are covered.
Place the lids on tightly and chill for 24 hours to let the flavors blend. Makes approximately 8 cups.
Pickles will keep in the refrigerator for up to 8 weeks. Other vegetables can be added as desired. Cauliflower, jalepeno peppers, and asparagus, all work well.
