  1. Add cucumber slices to a mason jar in a vertical orientation along with coriander, mustard, and dill seeds. Set aside.
  2. To a small saucepan add distilled white vinegar, sugar, and salt. Bring to a simmer over medium heat and stir to fully dissolve salt and sugar.
  3. Let the brine cool in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes to 1 hour. Once cooled, pour the brine over the cucumbers until your glass container is full. Ensure the cucumbers are fully submerged. If needed, add more vinegar or a little water to cover.
  4. Seal well and shake to combine. Then refrigerate for at least 1 hour. The flavors will deepen and intensify the longer it marinates. The best flavor is achieved after 24 hours.
