Home made pickles

The local biodynamic farmer gave me extra cucumbers so I made 8 jars of pickles!!
So easy.
I soaked the cucumbers in ice water.
I filled a large pot with water boiled it and sterilized all jars.
Then I cut up the cucumbers and placed cucumbers, a clove of garlic and a sprig of dill in each jar.
I brought 3/4 cup sea salt
6 cups vinegar
9 cups of water
To a boil until the salt was dissolved.
I poured the brine in the jars leaving 1/2" at the top.
Wiped down each lid and rim.
Sealed the jars.
And boiled the jars for 15 minutes.
Voila! Homemade pickles!!
