Dissolve the salt in one quart of the water, add the cucumbers and onions and let stand twelve to eighteen hours.
Drain the cucumbers.
Taste them, and if they are too salty rinse them in cold water.
Boil in a six-quart kettle for three minutes the one-half cup water, sugar, vinegar, mustard and celery seeds and the peppercorns.
Add the cucumbers, onions and the oil and cook only until the cucumbers begin to look clear but are not soft.
Pack boiling hot into hot sterilized jars and seal at once.
