Bread And Butter Pickles Recipe

1/2 peck cucumbers
2 c. white onions, sliced very thin
2 green peppers
1/2 c. non-iodized salt
3 trays of ice cubes
3 c. vinegar
2 c. water
5 c. white sugar
1-1/2 tsp. powdered tumeric spice
1/2 tsp. ground cloves
1 tsp. mustard seeds
1 tsp. celery seeds

Wash fresh cucumbers, onions and peppers. Do not peel cucumbers. Peel onions; remove stem and seeds from peppers. Slice all vegetables into very thin slices. In large bowl, mix the vegetables with the salt and ice cubes. Cover with a lid and let stand in the refrigerator for 3 hours. In a large stock pot, bring vinegar, water, and sugar to a boil. Add a spice bag holding tumeric, cloves, mustard and celery seeds. Place 1/2 of the vegetable into the boiling syrup mixture and boil until cucumbers are transparent (about 5 minutes). Pour into sterilized jars and seal. Repeat with remaining vegetables.
Yields 6 pints.
