7lb. 4-6 inch cucumbers sliced 1/4 to 1/2 inch
1 gal. water
1c. hydrated lime (in the canning section usually)

  Put lime in water and soak cucumbers in lime water for 24 hrs. The lime will settle so I usually press down on the cucumbers until the water is milky every few hours.  After 24 hrs. rinse and let stand in clear water for 3 hrs.  Drain and rinse.

1 1/2 qt. vinegar (5%)               1 tsp. celery seed
1qt. water                                  1 Tbsp. salt
9c. sugar                                    1 Tbsp. pickling spice

Mix these ingredients in a saucepan and bring to a boil.  Pour over pickles and let stand 24 hrs.  Drain syrup into a large pan and let come to a boil.  Add pickles and simmer 30 min.  Put in glass jars and process in boiling water bath for 10 min.  I do this for quarts and pints.

Enjoy, they should be very crisp!
Wendy
