    Units: US | Metric

    • 2 cups cucumbers, cut into 3/4-inch chunks blossom ends removed
    • 1/2 small onion, sliced
    • 2 teaspoons pickling salt, more as needed
    • 1/2 cup cider vinegar
    • 1/4 cup pure maple syrup (the darkest, most strongly flavored preferred but any will do)
    • water
    • 1 teaspoon mixed pickling spices (either store-bought or homemade blend)
    • 1 teaspoon coriander seed
    • Ball pickle crisp (optional)


    1. 1
      Combine the cucumbers, onion, and salt in a large bowl; mix well.
    2. 2
      Cover the vegetables with ice water and let stand for at least 2 hours, and up to 6 hours.
    3. 3
      Drain very well.
    4. 4
      Taste a piece of cucumber. If it isn’t decidedly salty, toss with 1 to 2 teaspoons pickling salt. If it is too salty, rinse with clear water.
    5. 5
      Combine the cider vinegar and maple syrup in a saucepan and bring to a boil, stirring to dissolve the maple syrup.
    6. 6
      Bring a kettle of water to a boil.
    7. 7
      Pack the mixed pickling spices and coriander seeds into a clean, hot 1-pint canning jar.
    8. 8
      Pack in the cucumbers and onions.
    9. 9
      Pour in the hot vinegar mixture (it will not cover the vegetables, so top off with the boiling water, leaving 1/2 inch headspace).
    10. 10
      Add a rounded 1/8 teaspoon of Pickle Crisp to the jar, if using.
    11. 11
      Remove any air bubbles with a non-metallic utensil; wipe rim of jar, place lid and screw band on fingertip-tight.
    12. 12
      Process in a boiling-water bath for 10 minutes (place warm jars in warm water; cover by at least an inch of water and begin timing when water reaches the boil to avoid jar breakage).
    13. 13
      Remove to a protected countertop to cool, undisturbed until completely cool.
