  • 2 quarts sliced cucumbers
  • Several cloves of garlic
  • Sliced Onion
  • Dill
  • 2-1/4 c. water
  • 1-1/4 c. vinegar
  • 1 c. sugar
  • 1/3 c. pickling salt


  1. Boil water, vinegar, sugar and salt.
  2. Meanwhile, place dill and 1 clove of garlic in bottom of jar.
  3. Fill 1/3 full with cucumbers.
  4. Layer onion and 1 garlic clove.
  5. Fill another 1/3 full with cucumbers.
  6. Layer with onion and garlic (I like to add another small dill also)
  7. Fill remaining space with cucumbers. Place another head of dill on top.
  8. Pour brine over cucumbers while hot.

Typically a jar will last about 3 months in your refrigerator, but we’ve never had them that long to know for sure 🙂
