This simple bread and butter pickles recipe is both excellent and tasty.

Yield:

About 8 quarts

Ingredients

6 quarts thinly sliced, well-scrubbed, unpeeled cucumbers
1 quart thinly sliced small onions
1/2 cup pickling salt
3 cups pure cider vinegar
6 cups sugar
1/4 cup mustard seed
2 tablespoons whole cloves
1 tablespoon celery seed
1 teaspoon turmeric (optional)

Instructions

Combine sliced cucumbers and onions in a large shallow pan. Sprinkle pickling salt over all and mix in with your hands. Cover with ice and let sit for 3 hours or more. Drain. Rinse in cold water. Drain again thoroughly.

Make a brine of vinegar, sugar, and spices and bring to a boil. Add drained vegetables and bring to a boil again for 3 to 4 minutes. Pack in hot sterilized jars and seal immediately.
