    1/2 c  Canning or pickling salt
      8 c  Sugar
      6 c  Vinegar (5 percent)

  large container and cover with boiling water. Six to 8 hours later,
  and on the second day, drain and cover with 6 quarts of fresh boiling
  water containing 1/4-cup salt. On the third day, drain and prick
  cucumbers with a table fork. Combine and bring to boil 3 cups
  vinegar, 3 cups sugar, turmeric, and spices. Pour over cucumbers. Six
  to 8 hours later, drain and save the pickling syrup. Add another 2
  cups each of sugar and vinegar and reheat to boil. Pour over pickles.
  On the fourth day, drain and save syrup. Add another 2 cups sugar and
  1 cup vinegar. Heat to boiling and pour over pickles. Drain and save
  pickling syrup 6 to 8 hours later. Add 1 cup sugar and 2 tsp vanilla
  and heat to boiling. Fill sterile pint jars, with pickles and cover
  with hot syrup, leaving 1/2-inch headspace. For more information on
  sterilizing jars see "Jars and Lids". Adjust lids and process
  according to the recommendations in Table 1, or use the
