2 cups cider vinegar
1 cup water
1 cup sugar
1/2 t. mustard seed
1 t. mixed spices
Soak cucumbers overnight in cold water. Slice but not too thin.
Make a syrup of vinegar, water, sugar, mustard seed and spices.
Bring to a boil, then add cucumbers & boil about 3 minutes until
they lose their green look. Pack pickles solidly into sterilized
jars, add 1 teaspoon salt to each quart, 1/2 onion sliced, cover
with boiling syrup and seal at once.
