When my polock mom makes pickles she only uses water, salt, pickling spices, fresh dill peppercorns which are crushed and garlic. You dont need vinegar. IT makes itself sour just by the pickling process, just like sour kraut, which is again, only salt and a bit of water. BTW pickles take about 10 days, but they are usually gone from the big jar well before the 10 days, lol.
