    5. 5
      Thoroughly mix the vinegar, salt and water and pour over the cucumbers.
    6. 6

      Keep pickles at room temperature and remove scum daily when it forms, (3-5 days).

    10. 10
      If necessary make additional brine using original recipe.
    11. 11
      In about 3 weeks the cucumbers should be olive green and have a desirable flavor.

      Any white spots will disappear in processing.
    13. 13
      Strain the brine before using as it is preferred for the added flavor.

      Add several pieces of dill and a clove or two of garlic to each jar, then cover with boiling brine to 1/2 inch from top.
    16. 16
      Adjust lids and process 15 minutes in water bath, beginning the time as soon as the jars are in the actively boiling water.
    17. 17
      Cloudiness of brine is typical when the original brine is used as the covering liquid.
