You will need
- 1 kg of cucumbers, 1 liter of water, 15 tablespoons sugar, 3 tablespoons salt, 2 cloves of garlic, dill, pepper, pimento, 200 ml of vinegar, one-litre jars, metal cap sealing machine, pot.
Wash cucumbers and cut off the tails. Cut lengthwise into 4 pieces. Banks clean thoroughly and check for chips and cracks. Dry banks put in a cold oven on the grate upside down. Preheat the oven to 120 degrees and banks sterilize for 15-20 minutes. Cover, put in a saucepan, cover with water and simmer for 5-10 minutes.
Enter a pot of cold water and dissolve in it the salt. Put on the fire and add the sugar. Stirring, bring to a boil. Add the vinegar. Turn off the heat and leave the brine to cool slightly for 5-10 minutes.
On the bottom of the jar and place peeled cloves of garlic, dill and allspice. Start to put cucumbers on banks and fill them with brine. Cover the jars and place in boiling water. Boil for about 10 minutes on low heat.
Roll up the jars with canning machine. Check for leaks. Banks turn upside down and cover with a towel or blanket. Through the day put in a dark cool place for storage (basement, storage room, garage, cellar). In winter you will find tasty crispy pickles.
On the bottom of the jar, you can put a small piece of sheet horseradish, cloves or red hot peppers. They impart a tangy flavor to cucumbers.
Pick young for pickling cucumbers. They will be more crispy.
