In a bowl, combine the cucumber slices with the salt. Cover with water. Cover with plastic wrap and let stand at room temperature for 8 hours. Rinse the cucumber slices under cold water. Drain. Spoon into sterilized jars.
In a saucepan, bring the remaining ingredients to a boil. Remove from the heat and pour over the cucumbers.
Keep the jars in the refrigerator or sterilized in boiling water for 15 minutes to store the jars for up to 1 year in a cool, dry place.
You can cut the cucumbers into thinner or thicker slices, as desired. My wife and my mother-in-law prefer the thicker slices, while I love them very thin, to garnish sandwiches or burgers. To each his own!
