  2. In large kettle add water, salt, sugar bring to boil and let cool to room temp.
  3. While it's cooling add garlic, onion, mustard seed, red pepper flakes. ( I add a clump of fresh dill, I removed it before adding the brine to jars.
  4. Once brine is cooled to room temp, pour brine into jars.
  5. The garlic on the bottom of pan, just add it to the jars.
  6. Place lids on jars and refrigerate for 3 days and enjoy.
