  • 8 medium cucumbers
  • 1/2 cup fresh dill
  • 1 cup white vinegar
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 2 teaspoons mustard seed
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • optional: other spices (black pepper, cayenne pepper, etc.)

Wash the cucumbers. Score along the sides. Slice into 1/2" to 3/4" slices, diagonally (so that the surface has a larger "face" on it). Combine with the fresh dill.

In a saucepan, combine other ingredients over medium-high heat, stirring until sugar melts and it begins to simmer.

Pour sugar-vinegar solution over cucumbers. Chill. Serve whenever (room temperature or cold).

Preparation time: 15 minutes
