I am 76 and I got this recipe from my Mother, so you know it's old! It is one of my favorites. It will last for several days in the fridge, if it isn't eaten before then.

Yes! This is it , I am so happy to find this. My mother used to make this year round - for the really cold months she would make a batch and keep on top of our wood heating stove, not "crispy" that way but still just wonderful. This is going in my "keeper" recipe box right awau.

This is IT!! I've tried a couple recipes from this website, and neither have been the exact kind that my mom used to make. This is, though! I add a tbsp of dill and leave out the celery seed since I never have any. Thank you for the great reminder of childhood :)

An excellent recipe that can be made zippier with just an easy change. In a saucepan on stovetop or glass measuring cup in microwave warm the vinegar, sugar, and salt stirring until everything is dissolved. As it cools, add up to about one teaspoon of mixed pickling spice in an infuser (or leave it loose if desired). When cooled completely dunk the infuser several time to extract flavor and remove. Stir in the celery seed and pour over the cucumbers and onions. Chill and enjoy.

This is tTHE classic cucumber salad. I've even done it with apple cider vinegar. Really the proportions are absolutely correct.
