    sharflan's Note:

    These are AMAZING! Everyone argues that it can't be cucumbers!! I've been told they belong in a pie - so sweet and in their own dark syrup. Lots of work but VERY worth the effort!

    Ingredients:

    Serves: 8-10

    Yield:

    pints

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      * The x-large yellow cucumbers are a particular type. If they are not available to you, regular cucumbers will do but increase the number to 12.
    2. 2
      Pare the cucumbers and quarter, removing the seeds.
    3. 3
      Cut into strips and halve.
    4. 4
      Combine the salt and water in a large kettle, stirring to dissolve the salt.
    5. 5
      Add the cucumber strips and allow to sit in the brine about 12 hours.
    6. 6
      DRAIN WELL.
    7. 7
      In a kettle, combine vinegar, sugar and spices. (The spices may be tied into a cheesecloth bag or left in the pot. I leave them in the pot).
    8. 8
      Heat to boiling, adding enough cucumber strips to cover the bottom of the pan, cooking until just slightly transparent.
    9. 9
      Remove the pickles to sterilized jars and repeat til all the cucumbers have been cooked.
    10. 10
      Pour the hot 'syrup' into the pickle jars (to within 1/2 inch from the rim), keeping any leftover syrup.
    11. 11
      DO NOT SEAL THE JARS! Cover the jars and each morning for the next 3 days, drain off the 'syrup' into your kettle (with any leftover syrup, boiling for 5 minutes & pour over the pickles.
    12. 12
      Follow this last step each of the following 3 days. SEAL on the third day.
    13. 13
      Brine time (12 hrs) is not included nor are the 3 days -- .
