  • Servings: 4

Source: Martha Stewart Living, November 1999


  • 4 to 6 Kirby cucumbers
  • 1 small bunch fresh dill, cleaned
  • 12 whole black peppercorns
  • 1 cup white-wine vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 clove garlic, thinly sliced


  1. Cut the cucumbers into 1-inch-square chunks, and place in a heat-proof bowl with 12 to 15 sprigs of dill. Set aside.

  2. Place peppercorns, vinegar, salt, and sugar in a small saucepan over medium heat. Cook until salt and sugar dissolve, 1 to 2 minutes. Add the garlic, and bring to a boil. Remove from heat, and pour hot mixture over reserved cucumbers. Let stand 30 to 40 minutes, and serve.

Cook's Notes

These pickles will keep, refrigerated in an airtight container, three to five days.
