This is her actual recipe and process ...
1 C white sugar
1 C white vinegar
1 Tbl salt
1 sliced onion
8 - 12 med cucumbers, sliced but not peeled (I use like 5 biggies)
4 heads of dill
Bring the brine to a boil (sugar, vinegar & salt), pour over cucs, onion and dill. Let stand 5 minutes. Pour off brine and bring back to a boil. Pour over cucs, onion and dill. Let stand 5 more minutes. Pour off the brine one more time and repeat process of boiling and pouring over cucs. Cover and place in fridge.
I do all of this in a big mixing bowl. Before I put them in the fridge, I sink a plate over the cucs to hold it all down overnight. The next day, I put it all into a Tupperware which is what I'm thinking I'm going to do with the asparagus because, Kayelle, I know won't find a jar big enough. Unless I use the sprout jar .... Hmmmmm
