"I have long believed that good food, good eating is all about risk. Whether we're talking about unpasteurized Stilton, raw oysters or working for organized crime 'associates,' food, for me, has always been an adventure."--Anthony Bourdain
Put sliced cucumbers and onions on a large cookie sheet with sides (such as a jelly roll pan); then put ice cubes and salt over them. Let stand until all ice melts. Once ice completely melts, drain.
While cucumbers are standing, mix together the rest of the ingredients and heat mixture for 5 minutes.
Put sliced cucumbers in hot sterile jars and pour liquid in on top of them. Remember to leave breathing room. Do not fill to rim. Seal with hot sterilized lids and rings. Save some to eat right away. Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours then eat.
