What I've been doing all day. Pictures later.

3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup salt
1 quart vinegar
1 quart water
3 tablespoons mixed pickling spices
30 to 40 medium cucumbers

Wash and dry cucumbers. Combine sugar, salt, vinegar, water. Tie spices in cheesecloth bag. Add to mixture and simmer 15 min. Pack cucumbers in hot, sterilized jars. Pour in mixture leaving 1/4 head. Adjust lids and bands. Process in boiling water bath 15 min. Yield 7

25 quarts is what I ended up with.

Our pickles are not producing much...I'm gathering some and hope to get a few jars made. If not there is always the farmers market:)
