    Place the above ingredients in a kettle, let come to a rolling boil, add the drained cucumbers, cover pan, let simmer until cucumbers are glassy, or until you can put a toothpick through easily, watch carefully. When they can be done, they will be nice and tender. Put in jars and seal. Makes 3 pints.
