Grandma's Bread and Butter Pickles

Soak for 3 hours:
2 qts. sliced cucumbers (Thin)
1/3 c. salt (Use pickling salt.)
2 onions (med.)
Add 2 c. celery last soaking hour

Bring to boil:
2 c. vinegar (Heinz is best. Really.)
2 c. sugar
1 t. celery seed
1 t. mustard seed
½ t. turmeric

Add drained pickles & let come to good simmer.

Fill clean jars. Process in water bath for 10 minutes. ( My grandma didn't do this, but, based on recommendations in the Ball Blue Book, I do.)
