Wash cucumbers and pack in clean jars. Add two to four pieces of garlic (depending on flavoring desired) and two hot peppers. If using dill seeds use three teaspoon to a jar or an equal amount of fresh dill. Heat salt, vinegar and water to boiling, then pour in jar covering vegetables. Let stand tightly sealed for at least 6 weeks. Chill pickles before using.
