* Note: Use small pickling or English cucumbers.
Place the cucumbers, onion and sweet pepper in a large nonreactive (glass or plastic) container. Sprinkle with salt and mix well. Let stand for 3 hours, stirring occasionally. Drain. Rinse twice and drain thoroughly.
Heat the vinegar in a microwave oven for 30 seconds or warm it slightly on the stove top. Combine the vinegar, sugar, mustard seeds, celery seeds and turmeric in a small bowl, stirring until the sugar is dissolved. Pour over the vegetables and mix well.
Pack the vegetables into small freezer containers. Divide the liquid and pour it over the pickles. Seal tightly and freeze.
Store the pickles in the freezer for up to 6 months. Once thawed, use them within several days before they lose their crunch.
This recipe yields about 3 cups.
