Fermented Dill Pickles

small pickling cucumbers

2 T sea salt
1 T fresh dill (or more if you like)
1 t mustard seeds

3 to 4 cloves of garlic, quartered
a dash of crushed red pepper (optional)
filtered water

variation: add a few carrots, cauliflower or any other veggie

Place your ingredients in a quart sized mason jar and fill within one inch of the top with filtered water. (use a small jar to weigh down the cucumbers inside the large jar. You want the cucumbers fully covered.)  Cover the jar with the lids and ferment on your counter for 5 to 7 days. (Whole veggies take longer to ferment than shredded, so I like to leave mine for about 7 days) Refrigerate to stop the fermentation process and enjoy!
