Kelli's Bread and Butter Pickles
4 quarts sliced cucumbers
6 white medium onions peeled and cut in thin slices
1/3 cup coarse salt
Do not pare cucumbers, just wash them and cut them in thin slices. I use a crock for these, while preparing. Mix cucumbers, onion and add salt. cover with ice. Let set overnight (I put in the fridge). You may have to add More ice. You want them to stay very cold. When ready to prepare, rinse them very well.
3 cups of sugar
1 1/2 tsp of turmeric
1 1/2 tsp of celery seed
2 tbsp mustard seed
3 cup white vinegar
Combine syrup ingredients in pot and bring to a boil. When sugar is dissolved, add cucumbers. heat to boiling. Pack into hot, sterilized jars. Remove air bubbles. Boil in large pickling pot for 10 minutes.
