Low Temp Quick Pickle Recipe

Low Temperature Quick Pickles 
(no need for canning or weeks fermenting)
adapted from Alton Brown's "In a Pickle" video

In 2qt saucepan combine the following:

1 cup water
1 cup apple cider vinegar
¼ cup white wine vinegar (although any white vinegar will do)
¼ cup sugar
1 tbsp salt
1 tsp pickling spice
1 tsp celery seed
1 tsp yellow mustard seed (powdered)
¼ tsp ground turmeric

Bring to a boil, then simmer for 4 minutes. Remove from heat and cool.
Into 1 qt jar, combine thinly sliced cucumbers or pickling cucumber (for more crunch) quartered lengthwise with:

½ medium white onion
4 cloves of garlic, smashed

Store in the fridge for at LEAST one day but three would be better!
