Sonny's tongue pickles

Yield: 1 batch

Measure Ingredient
9 larges Ripe cucumbers
⅓ cup Salt
4 cups Vinegar
4 cups Sugar
2 \N Stick cinnamon
1 tablespoon Whole cloves

Pare cukes and cut in half length-wise. Scrape out seeds and pulp, then cut in pieces about 1x2 inches. Sprinkle with salt and cover with cold water. Let stand overnight. Drain; rinse with fresh water and drain again.

Combine vinegar and sugar in a large enamelware kettle. Tie spices in a small cloth bag and add. Bring to a boiling and cook 5 minutes.

Add drained cukes and bring again to boiling. Reduce heat and simmer until cukes are tender and appear translucent. Discard the spice bag; ladle into hot pint jars, leaving ½ inch of headroom and process for 10 min. in a boiling water bath.
