1 cupful of salt
2 cupfuls of vinegar
Place the water, salt, and vinegar in a kettle. Let heat to scalding point, but do not boil. Pour over large cucumbers which have been quartered lengthwise and packed in sterilized jars. To each quart jar allow 1 medium-sized head of dill. Place the dill in the top of jar and seal. Store in a cool place for 6 weeks before using. A tiny piece of garlic or onion may be added to each jar if desired.
