Meg Evans' Grandmother's Pickling Brine

2/3 quart vinegar

2 cloves garlic
6 whole black peppercorns

Mix the vinegar, water and salt in a pot and bring to a boil. Put the garlic, peppercorns, cloves and chiles in a quart jar (reduce the spicing proportionally for a smaller jar) and pour in pickling brine. This will keep well in fridge for some time.
