Here is the one I use -

1 gal pickling cucumbers
1/2 c salt
several cups cracked ice
5 c sugar
1 1/2 t turmeric
2 T mustard seed
1 t celery seed
5 c cider vinegar

Wash cucumbers and cut into thin slices. Mix slices with salt in a large bowl and cover with the ice. Place a large plate on top of the ice and weigh it down with two - three clean, water filled jars. Let stand for 3 hours. Drain thoroughly and place the slices in a large saucepan. Combine the sugar and turmeric in a mixing bowl, then add the remaining spices and vinegar. Pour over the cucumber slices and heat slowly - do not let it come to a boil. Ladle the hot cucumbers and syrup into 4 pint jars. Allow 1/2 in head space. Process in a boiling water bath canner for 10 minutes.

just checking.... seems like forever since I seen a message here.

Here on the home front, it's hot, it's gonna rain, the weeds are thriving, mom's getting better, I have a zillion cucumbers and reading recipe books on
what to do with them all....

anyone got a bread and butter recipe? I love the stackers on my sandwiches,
wondering if I could do something like that.
