My father in law gave my husband this recipe a year before he passed a way. It has become one we use the most. You use an ice cream pail and it can last in the fridge for a year. (ours barely last a week.)
What you will need is cucumbers, 4 to 6 heads dill, 4 to 6 clove garlic, 1 med. onion, and 1 tsp Mustard seed. Then the brine is 1 pint vinegar, 1 1/2 quart water, and 1/2 cup canning salt.
Slice the cucumbers and pack them in as tight as you can. Then once you filled to the Top (I didn't have many so I only did a half a bucket.) Then cover with the rest of the onion, dill, garlic and mustard seed.
Cover with a cloth and let sit for three days one counter. then cover with lid and put in fridge and enjoy.
