Quick Refrigerator Sweet Pickles


2 large cucumbers, thinly sliced

1/4 C. table salt
1/2 C. sliced onions
1 1/4 C. water
1 1/4 C. apple cider vinegar
1/2 C. plus 2 T. sugar
1 T. mustard seed
1/4 tsp. ground cloves
1/4 tsp. allspice

Place the cucumbers in a colander and sprinkle in the salt. Toss the cucumbers around to spread the salt and let them sit in a clean sink or over a bowl for 1 hour. Meanwhile, combine the water, vinegar, sugar, mustard seed, cloves and allspice in a pot and bring to a boil. Allow to boil for 1 minute, remove from the heat and allow to cool. Rinse the cucumbers well in cold water to remove the salt. Place them on a clean towel and pat dry. Fill clean pint jars with the cucumbers and onions. Pour the brine over the cucumbers and seal with clean lids and bands. Place in the fridge for 12 hours before opening.
