Jodi's Fridge Pickles

I remember my mom making these when I was younger. Our CSA blessed us with an abundance of veggies which I put into our fridge pickles.
3 large cucumbers
1 onion
1 Tbsp salt
2 tsp celery seed
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 cup white vinegar

Slice unpeeled cucumbers into a medium sized bowl (or like I did, into a quart mason jar). Finely chop the onion; add to cucumbers. Sprinkle with salt and celery seed. Cover loosely with plastic wrap and set aside for 1 hour.

In a small saucepan, bring vinegar to a boil then remove immediately from heat. Stir in sugar, stirring until dissolved. Allow to cool, then pour over cucumbers (after they have been sitting for 1 hour).

Mix well; cover and refrigerate for at least 24 hours before serving.
