Deanne Sczepanski from Whitehall requested a recipe for Refrigerator Pickles from the “70’s” and I think this fits the bill.
sliced thin, not peeled
In a large bowl or ice cream bucket, combine cucumbers and onions and sprinkle salt over them and then mix to coat cucumbers and onions.
Let stand 1/2 hr. or longer then rinse. Put cucumbers and onions back in the bowl.
Separately combine the sugar, vinegar and celery seed and pour over the cucumbers and onions.
Mix to combine. Refrigerate. Will keep 6 months if frig if covered.
