Prep the Pickling Brine

Bring the vinegar, water, salt, and sugar to a boil. Whisk rapidly, then let cool to room temperature.

Assemble the Jars

Divide the garlic, dill, dill seeds, peppercorns, mustard seeds, and red pepper flakes between two jars. Then add sliced cucumbers and onions.

Add the Brine

Twist the lids on tightly, then turn the jars upside down and shake to distribute the spices. Then place them in the fridge.
