Cut onions into wedges.  Slice garlic.  Place all into 1-gallon ice cream bucket and add dill.  Combine vinegar, water and salt in a large saucepan.  Bring to a boil.  Let cool and pour liquid into ice cream bucket.

You can be creative and add other items to the mix such as green beans, zucchini, radishes, okra, bell peppers, etc.  You can also vary the amounts of vinegar, salt and water to match your personal taste. Pickles will last several months in your refrigerator.
