Uncle John's Pickles

2 quarts of water
1 cup vinegar
1 cup sugar
1/3 cup pickling salt
12-14 cloves garlic

Boil vinegar, water, sugar, salt and some sliced garlic and dill. Boil 5 minutes. Cool to room temperature. Cut cucumbers and fill jar.

Add dill, garlic and 1 tablespoon pickling spice and 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper, use bay leaves if not in pickling spice. Let set 8-10 hours. Then refrigerate.

*My Notes:*
- The best pickling salt can be found at Agway. The brand is Mrs. Wages!
-Thanks Uncle John!
