Swedish Pickled Cucumbers
Found on Iowasue
1 pound seedless (hothouse) cucumbers or Kirby cucumbers
¼ cup cider vinegar
4 teaspoons sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
⅛ teaspoon black pepper
Onion sliced (optional)
Celery seed (optional)
Peel the cucumbers and slice thinly. Slice onions if using and put all in a small bowl.
Combine the vinegar, sugar, salt, and black pepper, celery seed if using in a one cup glass measuring cup. Whisk or stir until sugar is mostly dissolved. Pour over the cucumbers. It really is enough even though it might not seem so. After they stand they will give off some moisture.
Cover the cucumbers and refrigerator for at least 30 minutes or up to 48 hours. Stir occasionally if using soon, and if marinating longer, stir one or twice before using.
