DIRECTIONS

  • Peel and slice cucumbers thinly, filling ice cream pail as you go to 3/4 full.
  • Mix with the additional vegetables and stir in salt, distributing well.
  • Cover and let stand 2 - 4 hours on counter.
  • Drain off the liquid (I like to rinse and drain again to remove some of the salt).
  • In ice cream pail combine brine ingredients and stir well. Do not worry if the sugar doesn't dissolve completely - it will on its own.
  • Mix in cucumbers and other vegetables, cover, and refrigerate.
  • The next day stir again.
  • Note: The brine won't cover the cucumbers completely at first so stir once a day. The cucumbers will release additional liquid over time.
  • Cooking time is standing time.
