  • 1 cup water

  • 1/2 tsp. yellow mustard seeds
  • 1/2 tsp. black peppercorns

Place cucumbers and onions in a large bowl and toss with sugar and salt. Let mixture rest overnight. Transfer cucumber mix to a sealable half-gallon glass jar or divide among several smaller glass jars. Bring the apple cider vinegar, water, mustard seeds, black peppercorns and turmeric to a boil. Strain the hot liquid over the cucumber mixture and cool to room temperature. Cover and refrigerate for 24 hours before eating. The pickles will keep in the fridge for up to two weeks.
