Grandma Dodes Icebox Cukes
These are the pickles my Grandma Dode made for her family of ten, with cucumbers fresh off the vine from my Grandpa Don’s huge garden.
4 cups cucumbers, sliced about ¼ inch thick
2 white onions sliced and separated into rings.
1 green pepper, sliced
1 cup sugar
1 cup white or raw apple cider vinegar
1 teaspoon celery seed
1 tablespoon sea salt and a little black pepper
Combine all the ingredients in a large glass crock or jar, covering with filtered water and chill in the fridge before enjoying. Keeps indefinitely (or a long time) in the refrigerator
