Default "lazy housewife" pickles for freezer or refrigerator

Lazy Housewife Pickles

7 cups cucumbers sliced 1/4" ,peel if you want first, but you don't have to

1 teaspoon salt

2 cups white sugar

1 cup sliced onion

1 cup chopped bell pepper

1 cup cider or white vinegar

1 teaspoon celery seed

Mix cucumbers and salt in a bowl and let stand one hour. Do not drain! Add pepper and onion to cucumbers.

Heat vinegar in microwave until hot, then add sugar and stir until it dissolves. Add celery seed. Pour dressing over cucumber mixture and stir until well coated. Cover and refrigerate overnight then serve. Store in refrigerator three days, stirring once a day, then they can be frozen for up to one year. Just put them in freezer containers, leaving one inch headspace and including the juice with the pickles. Thaw in the refrigerator to serve

This will also keep in refrigerator at least one month!
