    (Makes enough to pickle about 1 lb of vegetables)

    6 pickling cucumbers
    1¼ cup water
    ¾ cup white vinegar
    ¼ cup sugar
    4 cloves garlic, chopped
    3/4 tblsp salt
    1/2 tblsp pickling spice
    ¾ tsp dill seed
    ½ tsp red pepper flakes
    1 tsp cayenne pepper
    2 springs of fresh dill

    NOTES: I love mixing the baby peeled carrots with thick slices of pickling cucumber - great to snack on!

    Mix all ingredients well, until the sugar dissolves, except cucumbers. When sugar has dissolved add in the cucumbers.
    After a day they should be ready depending on how you like them. Keeping them in their liquid for many weeks, if you can wait that long to eat them!
