Kristy's Bread & Butter Pickles

I hate to admit this, but these are very similar to my mom's, but just a bit better.

30 medium cucumbers, thinly sliced
4-8 medium onions, sliced into thin rings
2 large red or green peppers, cut into fine strips or finely chopped (optional)
1/2 c. salt

Place cucumbers, onions and peppers into a large bowl. 
Dissolve salt in ice water and pour over cucumbers.  Let stand for 3 hours.  Drain.

4 1/2 c. sugar
4 1/2 c. vinegar
2 T. mustard seed
1 t. turmeric
2 t. mixed pickling spice

Bring syrup ingredients to a boil.  Add drained cucumbers, heat to boiling point, but don't boil.  Pack into sterilized jars.  Process in boiling water bath for 10 min.
