Ingredients

1/2 onion, thinly sliced

2 medium cucumbers, thinly sliced

1 cup water

1 cup cider vinegar

1/2 cup champagne vinegar

1/2 cup sugar

2 tablespoons plus 2 teaspoons kosher salt

1 teaspoon mustard seeds

1/4 teaspoon ground turmeric

1 teaspoon celery seeds

1 teaspoon pickling spice

4 whole garlic cloves, smashed

Directions

  1. Combine the onion and cucumber slices in a clean spring-top jar.
  2. Combine the remaining ingredients, with the exception of the garlic, in a non-reactive saucepan. Bring to a boil and simmer for 4 full minutes to wake up the spice flavors.

  4. Cool to room temperature. Top off the pickles with any remaining pickling liquid and refrigerate.
