  • Evenly divide the garlic, fresh dill and sliced cucumbers among four wide mouthed pint jars.
  • Before adding the mustard seed, red pepper flakes, peppercorns(if using) and dill seed, crush them slightly. You can use your hands, a mortar and pestle, or give then one quick whiz in the food processor(optional).
  • In a saucepan, mix together vinegar, water, sugar, red pepper flakes, celery seed, salt, mustard seed and dill seed. Heat to just dissolve sugar, then remove and let cool. Use a funnel to fill each jar with the cooled brining liquid. The spices may float to the bottom, so use a spoon to evenly divide anything that is leftover into the jars. Cap tightly and refrigerate at least one week before eating. Enjoy!
  • It was suggested you do this over a large bowl. The cucumbers start to float and displace liquid. Add the overflow back into the brining mixture before you fill up the next jar. No mess! :).
