Very, Very, Very Sweet Chips

I've embarked on a 9 day recipe to make some sweet pickles, the old fashioned way.  These are called "Grandma's Society Chips".  The first 4 days are a process of soaking the cucumbers, then boiling the liquid and pouring it over them again. I'm on day 5 now, so they are being soaked in a ridiculously sweet syrup.
 Bad photo, but these are the chips after being soaked a couple of days in the water.  They are beginning to be "see-thru" at this point.
Here they are soaking in the syrup yesterday.  There's a big glass dish weighing them down in this photo to keep the chips down in the syrup.  Bright green because the recipe calls for green food coloring.
Only 4 more days to go!
