Nanny Logan's Bread & Butter Pickles

16 cups cucumber sliced
6 medium onion sliced
⅓ cup salt
Ice cubes

Put cucumber and onions in a large pot, I like to layer them in my pot ( ½ cucumber  ½ onions). Sprinkle salt over the top and cover with ice cubes.

Once your ice has melted drain liquid off.

In a separate bowl mix together.......

3 cups white vinegar

5 cups white sugar
1 ½ tsp. numeric
1 ½ tsp. celery seed
2 Tbsp. mustard seed

Mix well and pour over cucumber and onions. Bring to a boil, occasionally stirring so your cucumbers look like pickles. Pour into jars and put lids on. They will seal when then cool. 

I get 7 500ml jars from one batch.
