Ingredients

1 large
cucumber, sliced about 1/8" thick or bigger
1 tsp
salt
1 small
onion, thinly sliced
1/2 tsp
mustard seed
1 c
white sugar
1/2 c
distilled white vinegar
1/4 tsp
celery seed
1/4 tsp
ground turmeric

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Wash and slice cucumbers. Slice thicker than dills. I use a ridged pickle slicer and it is great!
2
In a large microwave safe bowl mix, salt, onion, mustard seeds, white sugar, vinegar, celery seed and turmeric. Stir until all is mixed together and sugar is starting to melt.
3
Add your cucumbers to this mixture. I judge how many cucumbers to add by how well the mixture covers the contents of bowl. I double the recipe if I have a lot of cucumbers to do.
4
Place in Microwave on high for 7 to 8 minutes and few longer if you double the recipe. You will need to stir at least once during the cooking. Don't cook them too long you want a little crunch to them.
5
Take them out of microwave and let them cool a bit before you place them in sterile jars and then place in fridge until serving. This will make one or two jars of pickles.
6
If I am doing a lot of cucumbers I cut up my cucumbers and let them soak in water and in a large bowl mix up the ingredients mixture and then add onions and cucumbers. I then pour that mixture into another bowl to cook and repeat so I have some already mixed and ready to cook when one batch comes out of microwave.
