Several years ago, I saw this recipe in http://www.allrecipes.com/. If you have an abundance of cukes, you may want to try this. My adaptions are in parenthesis because I don't always like to run to the store to get something! This is an easy recipe & would make a great hostess gift.
1 large cucumber (I used 2 medium)
1/2 c. distilled white vinegar
1/4 t. celery seed
1/4 t. ground turmeric
In a medium microwave safe bowl, mix all the ingredients.
Microwave on high for 7-8 minutes, stirring twice, until cucumbers are tender & onion is translucent.
Transfer to sterile containers. Seal & chill in the refrigerator until serving.
