Stickles Recipe

I am looking for a recipe for "Stickles". These are pickles made from the yellow rind of very large cucumbers. The brine has a very nasty odor when cooking, but the pickles are very delicious and very sweet. Thank you to anyone who can help me.

Sweet Stickles

5 lbs. large and whitened overgrown regular slicing cucumbers
1/2 c pickling lime
3 3/4 cup sugar
2 1/4 t celery seed
3 c white vinegar
2 1/4 t canning salt

Peel and seed cucumbers. Cut into 2"- 3" sticks. Mix lime with 2 quarts of water, add the cucumber sticks and soak overnight. Rinse and drain 3 times in cold water. Soak in fresh cold water 3 - 4 hours. Drain. Combine remaining ingredients and bring to a boil. Add cucumber sticks and let stand overnight. Simmer, covered, 30 minutes until cucumbers and clear. Stir frequently. Pack into hot jars, seal and process for 10 minutes in a boiling water bath.

My first time to make anything like this. It said to "pack into hot jars" I did and put the kids on and am boiling them now... but should I have put any of the juice over the stickler?

While trying, unsuccessfully as it turns out, to find a recipe for someone at ThriftyFun, I did find this very unusual website:
Uncle Phaedrus Consulting Detective and Finder Of Lost Recipes
They find videos, albums, trivia, books, hard to find items - it's really a fun site. They have a section called 'back of the box recipes', for example. Hope you have as much fun as I did exploring. I love the web; you never know what you're going to find!
