4-6 6"-8" kirby cucumbers
4 large onions
1 TBSP salt

Slice cucumbers (unpeeled) and onions.  Place in large bowl and work cucumbers and onion with salt.  Let stand about 2 hours then drain.

1 c cider vinegar
1 1/2 c sugar
1/2 tsp tumeric
1/2 tsp alum
1 tsp celery seed

Heat dressing over low heat until sugar dissolves.  Pour over vegetables.  Refrigerate 2 days.  Stir occasionally.  Freezes very well.

I use a mandoline to slice the vegetables but a food processor with a slicing blade would be great too.  I put the drained cucumbers and onions into a large ziploc bag and pour the liquid into that.  Then I squish out all of the air before sealing the bag.  This way it doesn't take up too much room in the refrigerator and the pickling juice gets well distributed.
