Sweet Pickles

You can't get any easier than this! These pickles go great with a grilled cheese sandwich.

Since the jars are not sealed in a hot water bath, these must be kept in the refrigerator. 

2 1/2 to 3 pounds pickling cucumbers, sliced thin
1 medium Vidalia onion, sliced thin
3 cups sugar
2 cups white vinegar
4 tsp salt
2 tsp celery seeds
2 tsp mustard seeds
diced red pepper, optional

Place all ingredients in a microwave-safe bowl.
Cook uncovered on High for 4 minutes.
Cook 3 more minutes, until bubbly.
Put into jars and refrigerate.

Makes 8 to 9 half-pint jars
