  • 2 cups firmly packed brown sugar
  • 2 tbsp. mustard seed
  • 1 tsp. celery seed
  • 1 tsp. ground cloves

  1. Wash cucumbers, scrubbing lightly. Rinse well in cool running water. Cut 1/8 slice off the ends and discard. Cut cucumbers crosswise into 1/4 coins, measuring 10 cups. Combine cucumber slices, onion slices, salt and water in a large bowl. Mix well. Cover and let stand for 2 hours.
  2. Place 5 clean 500 ml. mason jars on a rack in a boiling water canner, cover jars with water and heat to a simmer. Set screw bands aside. Heat Snap lid sealing discs in hot water, not boiling. Keep jars and sealing discs hot until ready to use.

  5. Pack pickle mixture into a hot jar to within 3/4 of top rim. Add hot liquid to cover pickles to within 1/2 of top of jar (headspace). Using nonmetallic utensil, remove air bubbles and adjust headspace, if required by adding more pickle mixture and hot liquid Wipe jar rim removing any food residue. Centre hot sealing disc on clean jar rim. Screw band down until resistance is met, then increase to fingertip tight. Return fitted jar to rack in canner.
