This recipe differs from the many other delicious-sounding pickled cucumber recipes in its use of mustard seed and celery seed. Mom Hoffman's recipe didn't specify the amount of mustard seed or celery seed to use, so I guessed. Preparation time doesn't include "set aside" time.
- Sprinkle the cucumber slices with the salt and set aside for 1/2 hour, then squeeze out the excess water.
- Cook the sugar, vinegar and water in a saucepan long enough to dissolve the sugar.
- Combine all ingredients and stir.
- Allow at least a 1/2 hour for flavors to mingle before serving.
