Homemade pickled cucumbers with garlic, dill seed and red or black pepper. Although there is no sugar used in this recipe, you can add a tablespoon of sugar for each jar if you like your pickles sweet.
Preparation time: -, Cooking time: -, Serves: 0 


3 lb cucumbers
Lime juice (about 1 lime for every 4 cucumbers)

1 quart apple cider vinegar
2 quarts water
1/2 cup coarse salt

Garlic (1 clove for each jar)
Dill seed (1 tsp for each jar)
Black peppercorns or crushed red pepper flakes (1/2 tsp for each jar)


Slice the cucumbers along the length, place them in a bowl and cover them with fresh lime juice and water. Soak overnight.

Rinse the cucumbers a couple of times with clear, cold water and lay them on a towel to dry.

In a pot over high heat add 1 quart apple cider vinegar, 2 quarts water and 1 cup coarse salt. Bring to a boil and remove from heat.

While waiting for the vinegar mixture to come to a boil, fill the jars with the sliced cucumbers. Add a clove of garlic, a teaspoon of dill seed and 1/2 a teaspoon of crushed red pepper or black peppercorns to each jar. Boil the jar lids in water for a few minutes to sterilize them.

Fill jars with the boiling vinegar mixture and seal them with the hot lids. Let sit for at least 7 days before opening.
