Ingredients

  • 4 pounds cucumbers, sliced
  • 5 small onions, sliced

  • 1/2 cup canning salt
  • 5 cups sugar
  • 4 cups white vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons mustard seed
  • 2 teaspoons celery seed
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons ground turmeric
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves

  1. In a large container, combine cucumbers, onions, jalapenos and salt. Cover with crushed ice and mix well. Let stand 3 hours. Drain; rinse and drain again.
