I tried this using 2 cucumbers, 2/3 cup sugar and a few whole cloves in addition to the spices already called for. After heating in the microwave for the recommended 8 minutes, I kept heating in increments of 3 minutes until the onions turned translucent. Total heating time for this batch was 14 minutes. This made 2 pints. I put them in the fridge last night and just got out a jar this afternoon. They're fabulous! Nice and crunchy. But with time they may get a little sweeter, so next time (SOON!) I'll probably try using just 1/2 cup sugar. I didn't have any pepper flakes, but I'll be trying that soon, too.
I put the jars into the fridge as soon as I filled them, and they sealed nicely. Does this mean I can store them unrefrigerated after they're sealed? I don't have enough refrigerator space for the quantities I'd like to make.
