Pickling cucumbers


White vinegar



Pepper corns


Garlic cloves

So first you are going to cut some pickling cucumber in half and put them in a jar. Then after that you want to take some dill and put it in with them.

Then you are going to want to go over to your stove and put in a pot two parts water, one part vinegar, one part sugar, and one tenth salt. Then you are going to want to put some garlic cloves in the mixture along with some more dill, and a little bit of pepper corns if you have them. Mix until the sugar is dissolved. Then pour it in your container and then leave it in the fridge over night. Now you got some pickles.
