* 2 whole Cucumbers
* 2 cloves Garlic
* 1 cup Vinegar
* 1 cup Water
* ⅓ cups Sugar
* 1 tablespoon Salt
* 1 teaspoon Dill, Dried
* 1 pinch(es) Red Pepper Flakes
* 1 pinch(es) Coriander
* 6 whole Peppercorns
Use cucumbers with no wax residue on the peels.
Slice cucumbers in 1/4″-1/8″ slices.
Cut garlic cloves in quarters, then smash them a bit.
Put cucumbers and garlic in a bowl.
Heat vinegar (I like apple cider vinegar, but white works also), water, sugar, salt, dill, red pepper flakes, coriander and peppercorns in a small sauce pan until sugar and salt are dissolved.*
Pour over the cucumbers and garlic.
Cover and let marinate in refrigerator for at least two hours.
* We don’t love sweet pickles around here, so next time I think I'll cut back on the sugar.
