Refrigerator Pickles

Authentic Amish Refrigerator Pickles  
Ready to eat in 24 hrs
6 c cucumbers, sliced
1 c green pepper, sliced
1 c onion, sliced
1 c cider vinegar
2 c white sugar
1 tsp celelry seed
2 Tbsp salt
Slice the veggies into 2 quart jars, I like to make layers of peppers and cucumbers.  You can leave out the onions and peppers but they are so good!
Mix your other ingredients in a large measuring cup, stir well. The sugar will not be dissolved yet. 
Pour over sliced vegetables, evenly in each jar.  You will finish filling the jars with cold tap water.  I shake the jar a few times during the 24 hrs to mix.  No need to cook it.  Ready to eat in 24 hours. 
Taste best if eaten within a week or two but I like to add tomato wedges or slices to this liquid for overnight when it is close to empty of veggies.  Use the next day.  Unbelievable with sandwiches.
