      Title: Sweet cucumber chunks
 Categories: Pickles, Usenet
      Yield: 1 Batch
 
     10    Cucumbers, not too fat
      8 c  Sugar
      2 T  Pickling spice
           -(see note)
      5 t  Salt (non-iodized salt
           -is best)
      4 c  Vinegar
 
  Wash cucumbers and place in large pot.  Pour boiling water over
  cucumbers until they are covered.  Let stand for 24 hours and then
  drain.  Repeat this procedure for three (3) days. The cucumbers will
  be rather slimy after this. This is normal.
  
  On the fourth day drain and slice into bite-size chunks.  If the
  cucumbers are fat you can halve or quarter the chunks so you end up
  with bite-size pieces.
  
  Combine the remaining ingredients.  Bring mixture to a boil, stirring
  frequently.  Pour cooked mixture over the cucumber pieces.  Return to
  a boil, but just a boil. Do not cook. Pour cucumbers and liquid
  mixture into canning jars and seal. Jars should be sealed in a
  boiling water bath for 10 minutes.
  
  NOTES:
  
  *  A very sweet cucumber pickle -- My wife's grandmother provided us
  with this wonderful pickle recipe. Yield: Serves many.
  
  *  These are best if they sit for a month or so after canning, to
  give them time to work.  If you use iodized salt, they are more
  likely to get cloudy during that month.
  
  *  If your grocery does not sell pre-mixed pickling spice mixtures,
  try various combinations of mustard seeds, celery seeds, coriander,
  dill, or any other strongly-flavored spices that you like.
  
  *  We increase this
