  • 3½ cups water
  • 1¼ cups white vinegar
  • 1 Tbsp sugar
  • 1 Tbsp salt
  • About 4 cups cucumbers, sliced to desired thickness or cut into spears
  • 2 garlic cloves, sliced
  • 1 handfull fresh dill


  1. To make the pickle brine, add water, vinegar, sugar and salt to a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil on the stove, then remove from heat and set aside to cool.
  2. Add cucumbers, garlic and dill to one very large glass or plastic container or several smaller containers; 2–3 large mason jars work well. Pour cooled brine over cucumber mixture. Cover container(s) with lid and refrigerate for at least 3 days for best flavor. Pickles will keep about 6 weeks in the refrigerator.
