    1. 1
      Wash and prick the cucumbers with a silver fork.
    2. 2
      put a layer into a plastic bowl, then sprinkle with salt until all are covered with salt.
    3. 3
      (leave for approx 4 hrs).
    4. 4
      Put vinegar and water together in a saucepan cook on low heat.
    5. 5
      Thin slice the garlic and add to the vinegar solution, add the dill (or dill seed if you cannot get fresh) 2 teaspoons of coriander seeds, simmer for 5 minutes.
    6. 6
      Take off heat.
    7. 7
      After 4 hours the cucumbers will be saturated with water (the salt dehydrates them ie removes the liquid from the cucumbers).
    8. 8
      Wash the cucumbers 3 times in fresh water, shake dry!
    9. 9
      add to the vinegar mixture.
    10. 10
      The dedhydrated cucumbers absorb this wonderful dill/garlic flavour and believe it or not are ready to eat the next day!

      I made this recipe because it had a few ingredients. It turned out better then anything I could have bought. Taste great even without the garlic. Simple and easy to prepare.

      Turned out to be very good. Better after 2nd day. Had to guess a little on the directions. "Prick the cucumbers with a silver spoon" for example. I didn't have a clue so pricked them with a dinner fork. Also, dill probably should have been chopped. Didn't have a plastic bowl so used glass. Worked fine. Will make again next year when gerkins are in season again.
