REFRIGERATOR PICKLES

This recipe is from my late mother.

7 med cucumbers, scrubbed and sliced thin
1 large onion, sliced and separated
1 green bell pepper, diced
1/2 cup salt

Mix the above ingredients together, cover with water, let stand for 2 hours.

1 cup vinegar
2 cups sugar
1 tbsp celery seed

In a medium saucepan, bring the vinegar, sugar, and celery seed to a boil. Turn off heat and allow to cool.

Drain the cucumber mixture, rinse and drain again. Put the cucumber mixture into containers and pour the cooled syrup over them. Refrigerate.
