Cut cucumbers into bite-size pieces (may be peeled). Slice onions. Pack cut-up cucumber and onions into sterile one gallon container or jar. Set aside. In a medium saucepan, mix all other ingredients together and bring to boil. Pour hot mixture over cucumbers and onions. Mix well.
Place lid on jar and set aside on counter. Wait four days then place in refrigerator.
These pickles store well (in the refrigerator) for several months.
