4 medium size cucumbers, sliced into rounds or at an angle
1 t. dried dill, or a nice size bunch of fresh dill
1 bay leaf
1 c. white vinegar
4 t. white sugar
2 t. mustard seed
2 t. salt
2 cloves garlic, smashed
Place sliced cucumbers, dill and bay leaf in a heat proof bowl (preferably not plastic since it picks up the vinegar smell).
Put vinegar, sugar, mustard seed, salt and garlic in a small saucepan and bring to a simmer. Let simmer about 5 minutes and then carefully pour over the cucumbers. Let cool, chill and serve.
