  • 4 pickling cucumbers sliced
  • 1/2 cup white vinegar
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1 tsp mustard seed
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp dried dill
  • 2 cloves garlic cracked/smashed
  • 1 Tbsp black peppercorns (optional)
  • 1 Tbsp coriander seed (optional)
  • 1 bay leaf (optional)


  • Heat vinegar, sugar, and all other spices in a saucepan over medium heat and cook until just boiling.
  • Add sliced cucumbers to a jar or bowl, and pour vinegar mixture to cover.
  • Refrigerate for at least 1-2 days - the longer you wait, the pickle-ier the pickle!


Pickling/Kirby cucumbers are best for this because they are crisp all the way through, but of course any type of cucumber will work just fine.
