6 sprigs fresh leaf dill
4 cups water
1/4 cup white vinegar
1/8 cup kosher salt
1 tsp whole pickling spices

Clean the pickling cucumbers and cut into quarters lengthwise. Place in a glass jar, add the garlic and fresh leaf dill. Make brine by bringing to a boil the water, white vinegar, kosher salt, and pickling spices. Pour brine over cucumbers, filling jar 1/2-in. from the top. Process pint jars in a boiling water bath for 10 minutes and 15 minutes for quart jars.
