Pickled Cucumbers and Red Onion

This is a fantastic version of this old standby recipe. Joan made this for our heritage dinner last spring, and man was it good. With cucumbers and onions coming on in the garden, I thought it was a good time to post this. Try it; you'll like it!
1 cucumber, finely sliced
1/2 red onion, finely sliced
fresh Dill sprigs- several
1 1/2 cup white vinegar
1 cup sugar
5-6 allspice berries
1/4 tsp. salt
Put cucumbers and onion in a bowl. Add the dill and a pinch of salt.
In a small pot over medium heat, combine white vinegar, sugar, allspice and salt. Stir well until liquid is simmering and the sugar has completely dissolved. pour pickling liquid over veggies and stir to ensure all is well coated. Allow to cool to room temperature, then cover and refrigerate. Chill for at least 4 hours before serving.
