8 cups water
1 large stalk celery (about 2/3 cup), coarsely chopped
1 large carrot (about 2/3 cup), peeled and coarsely chopped
1 medium onion (½ cup), chopped
3 fresh parsley sprigs
3 fresh thyme sprigs
2 cloves garlic
2 bay leaf
1 teaspoon salt

2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
1 tablespoon sugar

6 bay leaves
6 cloves garlic
6 whole cloves
For the cooking liquid, in a large pot, combine all the cooking liquid ingredients; bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer for 20-30 minutes. Strain, discarding the solids. Let the liquid cool in the pot.
For the shrimp, add the shrimp to the cooled cooking liquid. Heat over medium-high heat for 8 minutes. When ready drain, reserving the liquid.
In a large bowl, whisk together the cider vinegar, lemon juice, sugar, salt, and dill weeds. Add the shrimp and let stand for 15 minutes.
In each of six 8-ounce jars, layer the shrimp and onion slices; add 2 peppercorns, 1 bay leaf, 1 garlic clove, and 1 whole clove to each jar. Divide the vinegar mixture among the jars. Top off each jar with the reserved cooking liquid. Screw the lids on tightly and store in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Discard bay leaves.
