Okay, so the pictures are garish and the lighting is yuck. And I hate the colors. But trust me, the pickles are yum--crunchy, easy, yum. That is, if you like pickles. Last week was a bit stressful for our family. I heard somewhere that eating crunchy things relieves stress. That's why they give you peanuts on an airplane - did you know that? But never mind that. Here's the recipe:
1 gallon jar
3-4 cucumbers sliced the long way
2-3 onions, quartered
2-3 garlic cloves
Stuff everything in the jar. Add a tablespoon or so of dill seed. Two cups of vinegar (I use apple cider vinegar 'cause I like the taste, but white is fine).
A half cup of kosher salt. After this, fill the jar with water. Screw lid on, and shake. Leave for one day on kitchen counter, then two days in the fridge. Ready to eat. :)
The pickled onions taste especially good with crusty bread and butter.
