Soaking time: 6 hours
Wash the cucumbers in cold water and brush. In a large container, place the cucumbers and cover with ice water. To make them even crisper, add some ice cubes and stir. Soak for 6 hours. Rinse and drain.
In a large stockpot, pour in the water and vinegar, and coarse salt. Bring to a boil. In the meantime, place the cucumbers upright in sterilized*, hot, pickling jars.
In each jar, add to taste some garlic cloves, dill stems or sprigs, 15 mL (1 Tbsp.) of salted herbs, and a pinch of mustard seeds and peppercorns.
Immediately pour the vinegar mixture over the cucumbers in each jar.
Seal tightly. Set aside for two months before using.
