Sweet Refrigerator Pickles

A good way to use excess cucumbers without heating up the kitchen.


6-8 medium cucumbers, sliced (approximately 8 cups)
2 large bell peppers, sliced
2 large onions, sliced
3 hot peppers, sliced
1 tablespoon salt
2 cups sugar
2 cups cider vinegar
2 teaspoons celery seed
2 teaspoons mustard seed


Place sliced cucumbers, onions, and peppers in a large bowl. Sprinkle with salt and let set for 1 hour. Drain. Stir together: vinegar, sugar, and seeds until sugar is dissolved. Pour over cucumbers. Store in a glass or plastic covered container. Refrigerate. Can eat right away, but flavors are better after about a week. Keeps for quite a while.

The vine is growjng way bigger then i thought....first timer. IT IS going every which way. I have a trellis...it has gone up...over and back again..could it be too crowded?
