12-15 cucumbers (depending on size)
7 or more cloves garlic
1/3 c. coarse pickling salt
1 1/2 tsp. pickling spice
2 tsp. dill seed
2 tsp. dill weed*3/4 c. white vinegar
6 c. water
*Can use fresh or dried dill weed. If using fresh, use about 8 - 4" sprigs of dill.
Cut the cucumbers lengthwise, but NOT all the way through. Place in a large glass or plastic jar. In a large bowl combine remaining ingredients, then pour over cucumbers. Cover with wax paper- 4 sheets thickness- and secure with rubber band. Sit on counter and shake for 24 hours (not you, the jar) then put in refrigerator for 7 days. Eat & Enjoy!
