3 cucumbers, peeled and seeded

3 cloves garlic, peeled

3 sprigs fresh dill or fennel or 1 tsp seeds

1 cup rice wine vinegar

3-4 Tbsp sugar

1 tsp salt

Pack cucumbers tightly into jars, adding garlic and dill sprigs.

Boil rice wine vinegar with sugar to dissolve the sugar.

Remove from heat and add pepper flakes and salt.
