One of my favourites for burgers and chopping into sandwich spreads. Similar to bread and butter pickles on pg. 37 of Vol. 2
1 gallon of sliced pickling cucumbers, about 5 lbs
2 cups sliced onions
1/2 cup pickling salt
3/4 cup lemon juice
2 cups honey
2 tsp turmeric
1 tsp celery seed
1/2 cup water
1 1/2 Tbsp mustard seeds, optional
In a large pot combine sliced cucumbers, onions, and pickling salt. Mix and cover with cold water and ice cubes, let stand 3 hours or overnight in fridge. Drain and add remaining ingredients. Bring just to a boil, but DO NOT let boil, remove from heat and pack into sterilized pint canning jars. Process in a water bath canner for 15 minutes after water returns to a boil. Add 5 minutes if you live over 2500 feet. Yields 8 gem pints. Naturally gluten free.

Tips ‘n’ Techniques
Sodium content is less than nutritional analysis because the pickles are rinsed. Sorry, I can't be more accurate. Serving size would be about 2 to 4 pickles.
