Freezer Pickles

Just made a batch of these yesterday..  They are soooo good. And the best thing is you can enjoy these into the fall and winter! I used canning jars cuz thats all I had, but you can freeze these in plastic ware or in heavy duty zip-lock bags.  I love the tumeric, if you don't have it, get some because it adds a wonderful flavor to the pickles.



INGREDIENTS:

8 pounds cucumbers, thinly sliced
1 cup thinly sliced onion
3 tablespoons salt
4 cups sugar
2 cups vinegar
1 teaspoon celery seed
1 teaspoon ground turmeric
1 teaspoon mustard seed
1/2 teaspoon alum

DIRECTIONS:
1. In a large container, combine cucumbers, onion and salt; mix well. Let stand for 3 hours, stirring occasionally. Drain and rinse. In a bowl, combine remaining ingredients; let stand for 2-3 hours, stirring often. Pour over the cucumber mixture and stir well. Pack into 1-pt. freezer containers, leaving 1-in. headspace. Cover and freeze up to 6 weeks. Thaw before serving.
