1cup sliced onions
1medium green bell pepper, thinly sliced
1medium red bell pepper, thinly sliced
1cup white vinegar
2cups sugar
1 1/2teaspoons salt
1teaspoon celery seeds
1teaspoon mustard seeds


  1. Combine the cucumbers, onions, bell peppers, vinegar, sugar, salt, celery seeds, and mustard seeds in a large bowl; stir gently to blend well.
  2. Cover with plastic wrap and let stand at room temperature for 2 hours, stirring frequently.
  3. Divide the mixture evenly between two quart-size freezer bags. Seal tightly and freeze overnight or up to 6 months. Thaw completely before serving. Store any leftovers in the refrigerator.
