      Prepare home canning jars and lids according to manufacturer's instructions. Wash cukes; trim ends. Cut cukes
      lengthwise into halves or quarters. Combine salt, water and vinegar; bring to boil. Pack cukes into hot jars, leaving 1/4
      inch headspace. Add 2 heads of dill or 4 tsp dill seed, 1/2 tsp mustard seed and 2 peppercorns to each jar. Ladle hot
