    Looking for Slippery Jacks recipe

    At least that's what my grandmother called them. A sweet pickle made with ripe cucumbers, peeled and de-seeded; soaked in a brine overnight and cut into spears to fit a quart canning jar; then simmered in water -- and now I'm guessing -- sugar, vinegar, perhaps pickling spice, other ingredients? We always had them with baked beans, ham and biscuits. I've been lurking around this great site and have saved enough recipes to keep me busy for months! And I hope to add a few recipes and tips accumulated in my 72 years. Thank you in advance.

    Thank you SO much for your quick response. The recipe in your first link sounds like what I'm looking for, perhaps modified a little by the second link, which contains a very interesting history of these pickles. Sadly, the pickles will have to wait until next year 'cause there aren't a lot of ripe cucumbers in Maine at this time of year!
