      30 sm. cucumbers
      1/2 c. coarse salt
      2 qt. water
      2 tbsp. vinegar
      4 to 8 cloves garlic
      4 bay leaves
      1/4 tsp. mustard seed
      1 tsp. mixed pickling spice
      10 sprigs fresh dill

      Wash and dry very firm, evenly sized cucumbers. Arrange in a crock or jar.
      Bring the salt and water to a boil. Cool; then add the vinegar, garlic, bay
      leaves, mustard seed and pickling spice. Pour over the cucumbers. Arrange
      the dill over all. The liquid should completely cover the cucumbers; if not,
      add more salted water.

      If crock is used, cover with a plate or wooden board to weigh it down.
      Loosely cover with cheesecloth. Keep in cool place for 1 week.

      I buy a big plastic container of kosher dill by vlassic, my favorite, when those are all gone, I keep the juice, I slice up a couple of cucumbers in the pickle juice and leave them in it for 4 days, and we have a whole new batch of pickles for cheap!!
