To combat the coming onslaught of cucumbers.

Refrigerator Pickles

8 cups diagonally sliced cucumbers (1/2-inch thick)
1 medium Vidalia onion or other sweet onion, sliced (1/4-inch thick)
2 celery stalks diagonally sliced (1/2-inch thick)
coarse salt
2 cups sugar
1 cup cider vinegar
1 teaspoon celery seed
1 teaspoon mustard seed

In colander set over a bowl or sink toss the cucumbers, onion and celery with 1 1/2 teaspoons salt. Set aside to drain, 30 minutes, tossing occasionally. In a small bowl, combine sugar, vinegar, celery seed and mustard seed; stir until sugar dissolves.

Divide the cucumber mixture among clean jars or airtight containers and pour vinegar mixture over mixture. Refrigerate at least 8 hours or up to 2 weeks.
