We have started picking cucumbers from the garden. Enough to make a small batch of pickles.
We used the cucumbers for a half gallon of shake pickles. I know the jar looks like a quart jar, but that is because Aaron is holding it.
Aaron's mom used to make these pickles. I remember going to their house and taking a turn spinning the jar around the kitchen counter. They are easy to make and you keep them in the fridge so you don't have to can them.

3 cups vinegar
1/4 cup salt
1 tsp mustard seed
1 tsp celery seed
1 tsp tumeric
Layer sliced cucumbers and onions together in a gallon jar. Stir together other ingredients and pour over the cucumbers and onions and place in the refrigerator. Shake once a day for seven days.
