Microwave Pickles

Comment on this recipe

I got this recipe from Taste of Homes Quick Cooking, July-August 2000. I have served these pickles many times. It is great to have "Home-made" pickles without all the work of canning!

Ingredients

1 medium cucumber, thinly sliced
2 small onions, thinly sliced
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup vinegar
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon celery seed
1/2 teaspoon mustard seed

Instructions

In a large microwave-safe bowl, combine all of the ingredients. Microwave uncovered on high for 4 minutes; stir. Cook 3 to 4 minutes longer or until it is bubbly and cucumbers and onions are crisp-tender. Cover and refrigerate for at least 4 hours. Serve with a slotted spoon. Makes 4 to 6 servings.
