Cucumbers And Flavoring

  • 5 small small cucumbers
  • 1/4 tsp mustard seed whole
  • 1/4 tsp dill dried
  • 1/2 tsp black peppercorn whole
  • 2 clove garlic


  • 1 cup white vinegar
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 1 tbsp salt


Preparing The Cucumbers

  • Add the cucumbers, mustard seed, drill, peppercorn, and garlic into your jar.

Preparing The Brine

  • Mix the vinegar, water, salt, and sugar in a stainless steel pan and bring to a boil.
  • As soon as it reaches a good boil, pour it over the cucumber mixture in the jar until they are just covered.
  • Put the top on immediately and put into the refrigerator.


  • If you cut cucumbers into coins, cut in uniform slides to keep the taste consistent. 
  • These quick pickled cucumbers will be good for a few weeks in the fridge.
