 Wash cucumbers well and cut off their ends. Using a knife, slit the cucumbers through lengthwise just short of the end.

 In the bottom of the jar, place some fresh thyme and dill and a few celery leaves .

Fill  jar with cucumbers, layering in sliced carrots and garlic. Do not forget the chilly.

If you are using a large jar add more herbs in the middle and some on top. Add peppercorns and mustard seeds.

Add the water and salt to a saucepan. Cook over medium heat and stir until the salt dissolves. No need to boil.

Pour brine over cucumbers, enough to cover.

Ready !!!!

Cover the jar with a small saucer and place it in the sun. Bring the jar in at night. Within 3 days, you should see tiny bubbles, indicating the cucumbers are fermenting. When the tiny bubbles have stopped rising (around 5 days), they are ready to be put on the table. Serve cool and store in refrigerator.
