My Dad's dill pickles

I used to can them in the summers - but that was ages ago. Recently I discovered the Costco bag of a dozen or so small tender cucumbers. I brine them and put what's left after sampling in the refrigerator. Here's the recipe:

Put the following into a large glass jar or bowl:
Sliced cucumbers (I cut them lengthwise)
3-4 cloves garlic (sliced)
piece of hot pepper or pinch of pepper flakes

Bring the following to a boil:
1 1/3 cups vinegar
1 quart water
1/3 cup salt

Pour over cucumbers. Cool and store in refrigerator.
