4 quarts firm young cucumbers
7 cups thinly sliced onions
2 cups red or green sweet pepper strips

1 cup water
2 1/2 cups white vinegar

Wash cucumbers.  Do not peel.  Cut into very thin slices.  Put cucumbers, onions, peppers into large kettle.  Dissolve salt in water and pour over vegetables.  Stir.  Put 2" thick layer of ice cubes or crushed ice over top and let stand 3 hours, weighted with a heavy object.  Combine vinegar, sugar, and spices in sauce pan.  Bring to a boil.  Cook until sugar is dissolved.

Drain vegetables and add syrup.  Bring to a hard boil and remove from heat at once.  Pack into hot sterilized jars.  Fill to overflowing and seal at once.  Store in cool dark place.  For best flavor, chill before serving.
