Iceberg Pickles

15 medium pickling cucumbers


For 4 days pour boiling water over whole cucumbers.

On 5th day slice and pour boiling syrup over. For the next 4 days, drain off the syrup, boil and pour over the pickles.

On the 10th day, pour off the syrup. Put the pickle slices or spears into sterilized jars. Boil the syrup and pour into the jars of pickles. The hot syrup should create enough of a vacuum to seal the jars. If not, process in a boiling water bath for 10 minutes.

Servings: 6 pint jars
Time to Prepare: 10 days

Do yourself a favor and double the recipe. It's a lot of work for 6 pint jars, for 12 pint jars, it's totally worth it.
Be aware before you start, though, that 14 cups of sugar is a little more than a 5 lb bag. These pickles are yummy!
