Quick Refrigerator Pickles & Onions

3-4 medium sized cucumbers, thinly sliced cucumbers - I prefer mine to be peeled, but you can leave the skin on if you'd like

1 small sweet onion sliced

1 cup water

1 cup white vinegar

3/4 cup sugar

1 tsp salt

a little pepper for taste


1. Mix water, vinegar, sugar, salt, and pepper in a mixing bowl until the sugar and salt have dissolved. Add cucumbers and onions to the mixture. Taste and adjust to your liking. Add more cucumbers or onions if you like more of either.

2. Your cucumbers and onions should be covered with the brine mixture. If you want to make a large batch make up more brine to add.

3. Place the mixture in containers in the refrigerator. The flavors blend together overnight, although I start eating as soon as I've made them.

They can store in the refrigerator up to two weeks. Makes about 4 pint jars of pickles and onions.
