Garden Cucumbers

Caroline and I recently went to a Farmers Market here in town. Everything looked fantastic - and we decided to purchase some cucumbers. I thought this recipe sounded like the perfect way to showcase our purchase. It was! The cucumbers were well seasoned, but not too tart from the vinegar. They also kept their crisp texture and didn't get soggy. I'm definitely making this again!

7 cups sliced cucumbers
1 green pepper, chopped
1 thinly sliced onion (I used 1/2)
1 1/2 cup sugar (I used closer to 1 cup)
1 tablespoon salt
1 tablespoon celery seed (or celery salt)
1 tablespoon mustard seed (I used dill seed)
1 cup vinegar

Mix sugar, salt, celery seed, mustard seed, and vinegar together and pour over the cucumbers, green pepper, and onion. Refrigerate for 24 hours.
