No-Salt Refrigerator Pickles

This is my brother's recipe, best with freshly picked cukes from his garden. It couldn't be simpler and is salt-free. Also works with carrots, beets, okra, watermelon rind, etc. p.s. When I'm really lazy, I just throw the ingredients into the pickle juice left from store-bought pickles; this is a great way to use watermelon rinds.
