The cucumbers for this prize-winning pickle are, of course, from the Prescotts' vegetable garden. Diana orders her long list of seeds from Vesey's Seeds of Prince Edward Island. Grown in Canada, Diana finds its Canadian-grown seeds the best for the short New Hampshire growing season.

  • 6 onions, sliced

  • 3 cups cider vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons mustard seed
