Much like Bick's sweet mixed pickles. I buy a jar of pickled onions to add to my pickles on DAY 8.

Directions

  1. DAY 1-- Wash cucumbers and remove stems. Slice off and discard 1/16 inch of each end. Cut cucumbers into slices about 3/4 of an inch thick. Layer cucumbers and pickling salt in a large stone crock or food grade plastic container just large enough to hold them. Cover with boiling water. Place a weight on top of the cucumbers to prevent them from floating above the liquid. Let stand 3 days.
  2. DAY 4-- Drain. Cover with boiling water.
  3. DAY 5-- Drain. Cover with boiling water.
  4. DAY 6-- Drain and rinse with cold water. Combine vinegar, 4 cups sugar and pickling spice in a large saucepan. Bring to a full boil: pour over drained cucumbers and replace weight.
