This is from Gramma Genevieve from my family...and I'm told it is really yummy and refreshing in the summer! I'll be trying this one very soon, because my kids love pickles and I really enjoy them too!!
2 quarts of water
1 cup vinegar
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup salt (we use less!)
Boil water, vinegar,sugar and salt until they are dissolved (does not take too long).
Place pickling cucumbers in mason/canning jar. (I have a container garden and have used 3 or 4 pickling cucumber..they're about 4 inches long). Slice, or quarter, them how you would like. Add 3 garlic cloves (more if you would like) into the jar along with 3 sprigs of dill (we added more as well...probably 6 to 8).
When water, vinegar, sugar, salt mixture is luke warm, pour over cucumbers/dill/garlic and refrigerate for 24 hours.
Mom used to make this and would get about 8 pints of pickles!
