Refrigerator Pickles

3 C. cold water
1 C. vinegar
2 T. salt

1 sliced onion
2 T peppercorns
4 cloves garlic, sliced
Crushed red pepper, to taste
Dill, to taste
Small whole cucumbers, or sliced larger cucumbers

Stir brine to dissolve really well.  Layer the solids in 2-3 quart-size jars.  Pour brine over.  I combined a few recipes, so I don't know exactly how to do it.  I let them sit on the counter, loosely covered for several hours and then stuck them in the fridge.  They were way yummier and more flavorful the first time around, so I'd say go heavy on the seasonings and flavor.

Good luck!
