16 cups cucumber sliced
6 medium onion sliced
⅓ cup salt
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.
