Making Bread and Butter Pickles

I cut up the cucumbers and onions, added salt and put in a large stainless steel bowl and refrigerated overnight, as I did not have time to cover them with ice and drain in 1 1/2 hrs as most recipes suggest, then prepare the water bath. Can you skip the ice down step? Or do I need to ice cukes and onions before canning?

You can skip this step but they probably won't turn out quite the same. There is usually a reason behind the steps in a recipe and most of all a canning recipe. The ice and brine are part of the flavoring and crisping of the pickle. You could also do a search and see if you can find a recipe a little more suitable to your time schedule that you need to work within. There are about as many recipes as there are people that cook or can!
