Bread and Butter Pickles

Another of my late grandmother's recipes.

Bread and Butter Pickles
25 medium cucumbers sliced
12 onions sliced
1/2 cup salt
2 cups sugar
2 tsp each of tumeric, mustartd seed, celery seed, cassia buds (optional) (may use whole cloves instead) [her notes]
1 qt vinegar

(1) Soak cucumbers and onions with salt in icewater for 3 hours.
(2) Combine remaining ingredients and heat to boiling.
(3) Add cucumbers and onions and heat for 2 minutes. Do Not allow to boil.
(4) Fill clean jars and seal at once. Pickles are ready in two weeks.

Try at your own risk. I don't know if she planned on keeping them constantly refrigerated or not.
