Here is a very easy and good recipe I have made.  It is from the book Make 
Your Own Convenience Foods by Don and Joan German, 1978.  I'm not sure if it 
is still available, its a great book.

Sweet Pickles

Bring to a boil:

1 cup water         1 cup sugar
1 cup apple cider vinegar   1 teaspoon mace

Add and let simmer for 6 minutes:

about 3 large cucumbers, sliced

If you cn't get the slices in the saucepan all at once, cook a portion and 
take them out with a slottted spoon, then cook the rest.  Pack into a jar or 
jars, top with the juice from the saucepan and chill.  You may can these if 
you wish or simply prepare them as needed in batches this size.  Makes about 
1 quart.

Variation:  During the cooking , add 1 small onion, sliced and separated into 
rings, 1/2 tsp. garlic powder, and 1 tsp. mustard seeds for bread-and-butter 
style pickles.
(this is what I did by the way)
