12 large cucumbers (peeled, seeded, & diced)
1/4 cup course salt
Combine in a large dutch oven or pot & let stand overnight. Drain Well in
the morning.
Add a pint of finely chopped onions to the mixture.
Make a paste of the following:
2 cups vinegar
2 cups sugar
3 tblsp flour
1 tblsp dry mustard
1 tblsp tumeric
1 tblsp mustard seed
1 tblsp celery seed

Simmer the paste until smooth and slightly thickened. Add to the
cucumber/onion mixture and simmer for approx. 30 minutes. Fill hot clean
pint jars with mixture and process in a boiling water canner for 20
minutes.

This recipe is quite 'tart' and will make 7-8 pint jars. It is a delicious
side dish and very good on burgers and sandwiches. Hope you Enjoy

I purchased 'large field cucumbers' from our local vegetable market. They
weighed about 1-1.5 pounds each.

There are many versions of this most english of recipes, there is much
that can be added into the mix, cauliflower, raddish, green tomato,
capsicum are all popular choices. In the main these pickles are always
tart and are delicious with cold meats. They formed a very important
part of the english cold table.
