#3416 - Microwave Pickles and Onions

(by Shirley McNevich)

1 cucumber
1 large onion
3/4 cup white sugar
1/2 cup white vinegar
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. celery seed
1/2 tsp. mustard seed

Wash the cucumber and cut it into thin slices. Wash and peel the onion, then slice thinly and separate into rings. In a bowl add white sugar, white vinegar, salt, celery seed and mustard seed--stir to mix. In a microwave safe bowl add the cucumber slices and onions--pour the vinegar mixture over the cucumber mixture and stir to coat. Place the bowl in the microwave--microwave on high for 3 minutes, then stir the mixture. Microwave on high for 3 more minutes or until cucumber slices are tender but still crisp. Cool to room temperature, then refrigerate until cold.
