1 med. onion sliced
1 tablesp. canning salt
1 1/2 cups sugar

Mix cucumber, onion and salt. Let
stand 2 hours. Drain. Mix sugar with
vinegar. Pour over cucumbers. Pack
in containers and freeze.

Becky, this sounds so easy! I am going to give it a try next year when I have (hopefully) a bumper crop of pickles.
