Marinated Cucumber and Onion

In the Jan. 6 newsletter Jana requested a recipe for pickled cucumber & onions. I have used the following recipe for years and my Southern families really like it. If you ever get to Charleston, SC - go to Jestine's Restaurant and this dish is served complimentary to every table.

Marinated Cucumber and Onion

1/2 C. white vinegar
2 medium cucumbers, partially peeled & thinly sliced
1/2 C. water
1 tsp. salt
1 medium onion, thinly sliced (or more if desired)
1/2 C. sugar
1/2 tsp. celery seed

Combine vinegar, water, salt and sugar in saucepan and bring to boiling, stirring to make sugar is dissolved. Cool completely before pouring over sliced cucumbers and onion. Stir in celery seed. Refrigerate in covered container at least 24 hours. May use vinegar a second time (but may need to add more vinegar).
