 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    1      quart         vinegar
   12      to 14         cucumbers -- sliced
    1      quart         water
      1/2  cup           canning salt or table salt
           sprig         dill
    3      cloves        garlic
           shake         mustard seed
 
 Very simple recipe. Mix salt, vinegar and water together. I nuke mine for about
 20 minutes in the microwave (making sure to stir the salt in) while I'm cutting
 slices. Put a sprig of dill and a couple of garlic cloves in along with a shake
 of mustard seed or whatever type of spices you perfer in your clean, water
 bathed jar. If packed tight makes enough juice for about 4 quarts or 8 pints.
 Water bath for about 10 minutes.

 NOTES : You can also use this same method and refrigerate the pickles instead of
 water bath. They're good for about 2 months. They are also crisper. This is an
 approved Ball method and measurements for refridgerated pickles.
