    I got one..

    2 - 2 1/2 cups of sliced cucumbers about 1/4" thick
    2 1/2 teaspoons pickling salt
    2 sprigs of fresh dill about 6" long(finely chopped) or a tablespoon of dry dill seeds
    2 cloves of garlic(minced)
    1/2 cup distilled white vinegar
    1/2 cup water

    Prepare your jars..Put your cucumber slices in a big bowl and add 1 1/2 teaspoons of pickling salt..Toss well and cover in cold water to soak 2-3 hours then drain..Put your dill,garlic and 1 teaspoon of pickling salt..Pack your slices in the jar..Combine water and vinegar and bring to a boil then pour the hot vinegar solution over the cucumbers..Seal your jars and refrigerate for 6 weeks..

    This is the same way I do mine also. However this year I was unable to come up with enough cukes, my brother had a bunch of squash, so I used squash instead, you barely can tell a difference, when you slice them up. The kids are big pickle fans, ate the heck out of them...

    Had to edit the recipe to add "in jar"..There was some confusion on that part and I couldn't figure out how to edit the original post..

    Just pulled out a jar today thats been in the back of the fridge for 6 weeks and they were the BOMB...I also make spicy pickles by adding cayenne peppers and substituting salt with Toney Chacheries and they came out awesome too..I think the fresh dill makes a big difference..
