Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method

1 quart vinegar
12 to 14 cucumbers -- sliced
1 quart water
1/2 cup canning salt or table salt
  sprig dill
3 cloves garlic
  shake mustard seed

Very simple recipe. Mix salt, vinegar and water together. I nuke mine for about 20 minutes in the microwave (making sure to stir the salt in) while I'm cutting slices. Put a sprig of dill and a couple of garlic cloves in along with a shake of mustard seed or whatever type of spices you perfer in your clean, water bathed jar. If packed tight makes enough juice for about 4 quarts or 8 pints. Water bath for about 10 minutes.

NOTES : You can also use this same method and refrigerate the pickles instead of
water bath. They're good for about 2 months. They are also crisper. This is an approved Ball method and measurements for refridgerated pickles.
