Grandma's pickles

My Grandmother loved bread and butter pickles. I have found one of her written recipes, so I am going to share her recipe. Today makes 13 yrs that I have been without my Grandma. So this is for her.

Bread and Butter Pickles

5 C sugar
5 C vinegar
1 1/2 tsp turmeric
1 Tb celery seed
1/2 tsp whole mustard seed
1 med onion, sliced
7 lbs sliced cucumbers

Soak the sliced cucumbers in mixture of 1/2 c salt to 1 quart water and ice cubes for 2 hrs.
Combine other ingredients and bring to a boil. Then add the cucumbers. Let the mixture get real hot, but not boiling. Place in clean pint jars and seal. This makes 6 pints.
