Feel free to add some fresh chopped dill or other pickling ingredients. I just wanted to show the fastest and simplest way to pack your fridge with pickles. I also add 1 teaspoon of honey to my pickles, and this is optional; I like my pickles to have a slightly sweet, relish-like taste to them. To keep it pure, you may want to use distilled water or water that is not chlorinated to lacto-ferment your pickles. Either way, they taste great!
