RECIPE PREPARATION Sweet and sour cucumber jar:

Put the vinegar, water, salt, sugar and spices in a saucepan.

When they have changed color, remove them and leave them to cool. Cut the carrot and horseradish into beautiful shapes and onion scales or rounds. Put some of the horseradish in well-washed and sterilized jars. Then place the cucumbers on top, including the onion, carrot, and garlic. On top we add the rest of the horseradish. I put in a few jars and a little cauliflower left in the fridge. Place the jars on the knife blade and pour the hot liquid. Screw the lids on and put them to bed until the next day.

Bulgarian cucumbers

I'm sure everyone tasted the famous Bulgarian cucumbers, the ones we would eat plain and drink and the juice from the jar, they are so good! Sweet and sour and aromatic, perfect with a steak, wonderful in salads with mayonnaise, the finest pickle in my humble opinion!
My mom used to put pickles every year, with brine or vinegar and of course there were cucumbers. He would put them in brine or vinegar and open the first jar when I made the first beef salad. However, I only ate Bulgarian cucumbers bought from the store until I ate them made by my mother-in-law (then only "future"). I was pleasantly surprised and impressed to find the taste of cucumbers in the store, in a homemade dish. Now I am amused by chance, because he taught me a long time ago to prepare them and I do it successfully, year after year & # 8230 or at two years, if I put too many. It's nothing complicated, you just need a little attention to the ingredients and how to prepare it. We make them in industrial quantities, but I try to reduce them to a minimum so that you understand the essence of the recipe.
ingredients: (for 6 800ml jars)
3 kg of fresh cucumbers (from the prickly ones, carefully chosen to be as straight as the size, suitable as a length for 800ml jars)
1 bundle of dried dill sticks (including "hats" - inflorescence and seeds, necessarily)
3 small onions
18 cloves of garlic
6 teaspoons mustard berries
6 teaspoons pickle salt
18 teaspoons sugar
300ml 9 degree vinegar (we use Regal)
Method of preparation:
1. First, wash, drain and dry all jars and make sure they have good lids.
2. Wash the cucumbers well, drain them and sort them by size (in case you make a larger quantity).
3. Peel and wash the onion and garlic, then cut the onion into slices of the appropriate thickness, max.5mm).
4. Chop the dill sticks with a kitchen scissors, in pieces of approx. 5cm.
5. Make sure you have all the necessary ingredients and utensils on hand at the work table before you start "mounting" the cucumbers in jars.
6. First put on the bottom of the jars a few pieces of dill sticks and about 2-3 "hats" (ie flowers with seeds), if they are small, obviously.
7. Then put 3 onion rings (from the cephas I chose, make the rings with a diameter of 3-4 cm max.).
8. Add 2-3 cloves of garlic, if they are of normal size, and if they are perfectly large, cut them in half and count the pieces.
9. Now place the cucumbers in jars, so as to fill the space as well as possible. On top, if it remains empty, put thick slices cut from the crooked or larger cucumbers, the ones you left aside because they seemed inappropriate.
10. Pour into each jar a teaspoon of mustard seeds and stir the jar a little, so that the grains enter the cucumbers (although they will enter when you pour the liquid).
11. Put a grated teaspoon of pickle salt in jars over the cucumbers.
12. Add three teaspoons of sugar.
13. Now is the time to pour the vinegar and a little more attention is needed. For each 800 ml jar put 1 cm of vinegar on the bottom of the jar, no more! I could give you the quantity in milliliters, less than 40ml, but you will best measure it like that, in my eyes, believe me! Here the recipe usually spoils, by those who are tempted to put more vinegar & # 8230 the result will no longer be the same, but you will simply have sour cucumbers, not Bulgarian cucumbers.
14. Now fill the jars with water up to the top and then tighten the caps tightly.
15. Place the jars in a pot in which you can pour water over the lids, after placing on the bottom of the pot an older kitchen towel, or even some newspaper.
16. Put the pot with the jars on the right heat and watch carefully to catch the moment when the water starts to boil. From this moment, let it boil for about 5 minutes (possibly a little longer, depending on the amount you have prepared). Don't leave more! When the cucumbers have changed their color from dark green to that specific to pickles, turn off the heat and carefully remove the jars from the hot water! We just want to make sure that we have sterilized the jars and that they will keep in a cool place for three years, not to cook the cucumbers !!
17. Allow the jars to cool and drain on a kitchen towel and they are ready to take to the cellar. In two to three weeks I am ready to eat & # 8230 and I assure you that you will lick your fingers!

How to prepare cucumbers in vinegar without preservatives

Two words before we get to work

A brief introduction: the above quantities are sufficient for 3 jars of 720 ml each. If you want to make a larger amount of cucumbers in vinegar, increase all the ingredients proportionally.

The last three ingredients on the list above are optional and are mainly related to flavor. If you don't like onions at all, you can give it up. If you don't like garlic, it's also dispensable. Instead of cherry leaves (whose aroma I adore in pickles) you can use celery leaves. In addition to the above, you can add in the jars of cucumbers in vinegar hot peppers, slices or sticks of carrots, allspice berries, etc.

This time, instead of the usual onion, I used chives. I like to find it in the jar, it becomes sweet and sour and according to my very pleasant taste. You can also use regular onion rings.

Sterilization of jars

1. Any can begins with the sterilization of the containers in which the product is to be stored, as well as these cucumbers in vinegar. Therefore, wash the jars with warm water and dishwashing detergent. Rinse in a little water then place on a metal tray. Put the tray with the jars in the cold oven. Turn on the oven and set at 150 ° C. Maintain the temperature for 15 minutes, then turn off the oven, leaving the jars to cool there.

The lids are checked for deformation or rust. Ideally, you should use new covers, but they can be reused, provided they close tightly. Wash the lids thoroughly with warm water and detergent. Rinse and place in a bowl. Pour boiling water over them to cover them. Allow to cool in water then wipe with a perfectly clean kitchen towel and use.

Bottling cucumbers

2. Wash the cucumbers well in some cold water. I usually cut the cucumber stalks with a knife. Thus, our Bulgarian cucumbers will ripen faster and the marinade will penetrate them evenly. In the jars prepared as described in point 1, put at the bottom 1/2 tablespoon of mustard seeds, 10 peppercorns, cherry leaves, 1-2 dried dill flowers. Crush the cucumbers in jars as tightly as possible, interspersing horseradish sticks, onions, garlic, etc. It is fixed in a jar with two dill sticks placed on top, in a cross.

Filling jars and storing

3. Measure the water and put it on the fire with salt and sugar. Stir until the salt melts and bring to the boil. The vinegar is added and the hot juice is poured with the polish into the jars placed on a metal tray, whose role is to take over the thermal shock, preventing the glass from cracking. The juice must completely cover the contents of the jars. Immediately screw the prepared lids as described in point 1. Allow the jars to cool to room temperature and we can store our cucumbers in the cellar in vinegar.

It would be very useful to shake the cucumber jars in vinegar once a day for at least the first week, turning them upside down once, this will help to distribute the flavors evenly in the jars. It is kept perfectly over the winter, in a cool pantry, protected from direct sunlight, provided that the jars are tightly closed. You must keep in mind, however, that after opening a jar of these cucumbers in vinegar, keep it in the refrigerator, trying to consume it as soon as possible.


Method of preparation

Wash the fresh cucumbers that must be unpeeled and very strong, small and thin, then remove their heads and place 6 vertically in the jar and make the other 2 place on top.

Between them, when we place them, we arrange the dried sprigs of dill, peppercorns, mustard and coriander, hot pepper, pour the vinegar, add the sugar and salt, fill with cold water, then screw tightly, check by overturning the jar of a few times not to flow and mix the ingredients.

Place the jar next to the jar in a pan, higher than the jars and add water to the mouth of the jars, then sterilize them. Boil over low heat for 45 minutes from the first boil. They get off the fire.

Cover the pan with a blanket and let it cool at will, then go to the cellars. They stay pickled for 2 years, they remain the same in taste and color, they are sweet and sour, with a slightly spicy taste.
