3C white vinegar
12 sliced garlic cloves
Heat the above to boiling, then remove garlic (like all onion family, very susceptible to bacterial activity). Pack about 4lbs of washed, sliced cukes into hot, sterile jars. Add about 2TBS dill seeds, sprinkle with dill weed, add desired number of peppercorns, and fill the jars with the above hot liquid within 1/2 inch of top. Immediately adjust and seal lids, and process in water bath for 10 minutes.
This is "short brine" and doesn't keep as long as "long brine." Good luck!
