    Very Easy!

    Bread and Butter Pickles

    16-20 medium cucumbers, thinly sliced
    10 small onions, thinly sliced
    1/3 Cup salt (80 mL)
    3 Cups (720 mL) distilled vinegar
    2 Cups (480 mL) sugar
    2 Tablespoons (30 mL) mustard seed
    2 teaspoons (10 mL) turmeric
    2 teaspoons (10 mL) celery seed
    1 teaspoon (5 mL) ground ginger
    1 teaspoon (5mL) peppercorns

    Combine cucumber and onion slices in large bowl. Layer with salt and cover with ice cubes. Let stand 1 hours; drain and rinse. Place remaining ingredients in large saucepot and bring to a boil. Add drained cucumbers and onions and return to boiling. Pack hot into hot 1 pint (720 mL) jars, leaving inch (6 mm) headspace. Remove air bubbles. Adjust caps. Process 10 minutes in boiling water bath. Yield: about five 1 pint jars (3600 mL).

    I use pint jars.
