Fridge and/or Freezer Pickles

7 cups sliced skin-on cucumbers (ordinary or the pickle cucumbers)
2 cups sugar
1 teaspoon celery seed (can substitute fresh dill weed)
½ tablespoon salt
1 cup white vinegar
1 large onion thinly sliced

1. Mix sugar, celery seed/dill, salt and white vinegar until well blended.
2. Pour over cucumbers and onions, and stir until thoroughly mixed.
3. Put in a gallon freezer ziplock bag, making sure to scape any sugar/salt residue with a spatula into the bag.
4. Leave in refrigerator for 5 days, turning the bag once a day. For fear of leaks, place bag in the crisper drawer, or a large bowl.
