 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    7      cups          sliced cucumber
    2      gallons       water
    2      cups          dry lime
 
 Mix the lime, water and cucumbers in container.  I use a plastic bucket with
 good results.  Let stand 24 hours.  Then, wash at least 5 times in cold water,
 and cover with fresh water.  Let stand for 3 hours and drain.  Add 1/2 gallon
 vinegar minus one cup, 4 cups sugar and 1 tablespoon salt.  Mix well.  Add
 cucumbers and let stand for another 24 hours.  Heat for 35 minutes, place in
 jars and seal.

 NOTES : Lime pickles are delicious, firm and crisp.  You may add a few drops
 of green coloring if you desire a brighter color.  Use a wide mouth jar if
 possible as these pickles are very firm  and do not bend easlily.
