4 cups distilled white vinegar
4 tablespoons Sea Salt (I use Himalayan pink)
4 grated organic cloves of garlic
3 tsp garlic powder
2 cups cold water
6-8 smashed organic cloves of garlic
1-3/4 to 2 pounds organic cucumbers (about 6), cut into halves or spears or use the small whole pickles
2-6 TBSP whole pepper corns
16-20dill sprigs (I use 3 whole packets of the organic dill sprigs)
Bring vinegar, sea salt, grated garlic, and water to a boil. Remove from burner and cool to room temperature.
In 2-4 jars depending on the size of the jar add cucumbers packed tight add 1 1/2 TBSP pepper corns and 3-5 sprigs of dill. Then pour vinegar mixture over. Let them sit at least 5 days.
I make a batch with a little sweet heat for my husband. I add 3-6 TBSP honey or maple syrup to the vinegar mix. And add 1 1/2 tsp of red pepper flakes. Add more for more sweet or or heat.
