Bread and butter pickles
These were delicious, but a little too salty for my tasty. Good as a condiment.
16 oz cucumbers
1 large onion
2.5 tbsp Kosher salt
0.75 cup sugar
0.75 cup vinegar
0.25 tsp turmeric
1.5 tbsp mustard seed (whole)
1.5 tbsp coriander seed (whole)
Slice the cucumbers into quarter-inch-thick slices. Slice the onion into thin slices.
Toss cucumber and onion slices with salt. Cover with ice and let sit at room temperature for 2 hours.
Bring sugar, vinegar and spices to a boil. Drain cucumbers and add to the vinegar mix. Bring back to a boil.
Scoop into clean jars and seal. Store in fridge.
