Microwave Bread & Butter Pickles

Several  years ago, I saw this recipe in  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 t. salt
1 onion, thinly sliced
1/2 t. mustard seeds (I used 1 t. pickling spice)
1 cup sugar (I used 2/3 cup & it's plenty sweet!)
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.
