Sweet pickles #2

Yield: 1 Servings

Measure Ingredient
7 pounds Sliced cucumbers; about 1/4-inch thick
2 gallons Water
3 cups Lime
5 pounds Sugar
2 quarts Cider vinegar
½ teaspoon Oil of cinnamon
½ teaspoon Oil of cloves
2 teaspoons Celery seed
2 teaspoons Mustard seed
5 teaspoons Salt

Soak cucumbers overnight in water & lime. Next morning, wash cucumbers well & soak in ice water for 3 hours. In the meantime, make a syrup of the rest of the ingredients. (You may tie the celery & mustard seed in a piece of cheesecloth so the seeds will not be in your pickles later, if desired.) Soak cucumbers in the syrup for 4 hours. Simmer for 1 hour & pack in sterilized, hot jars. Be sure & cover the cucumbers with syrup after putting them into jars. This recipe makes over 10 pints.
