Easy pickle recipe I picked up while visiting a tiny town in North Dakota
  1. Bring water, vinegar and 1/2 C. pickling salt to a boil for 3 minutes. Allow to cool completely.
  2. Prep cucumbers by cleaning them and removing any spines if they're fresh. Cut the ends off, then cut each cucumber into pickle-sized spears. Usually in 1/4ths, but 1/6ths if it's a big cucumber.
  3. Put a handful of dill in the bottom of a large container with a lid. Like a large ice cream container. Place cut cucumber spears on top of the dill so that they're standing upright. If there's a lot of room left, you can layer more cucumbers on top (they can be laying down, it doesn't matter).
  4. Throw in 5 garlic cloves, 2-3 dried red chile peppers, 2 Tb pickling spice and another small handful of dill. Cover the entire thing with the cooled brine. Close container and place on counter top overnight.
  5. Put container in the fridge for a week, then eat or jar.
