I used 4 small cucumbers from our garden, TX sweet onion (also from our garden), a few slices of garlic, dried dill weed, and some chopped celery. I doubled the liquid ingredients to get almost 2 quarts. I did slice the cucumbers somewhat thick as that is how we enjoy them. We turned the jars upside-down in the fridge, then after 8 hours turned them right side up overnight. They turned out wonderfully sweet! Next time I may add some julienne carrots and some cauliflourettes. Endless possibilities for a sweet mix. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
