So it turns out that you need to start harvesting such a vegetable right from the summer so that your family will have enough of it at least until the first spring days. Today I will tell you a somewhat unusual recipe for harvesting cucumbers for the winter. As a result, you will get a dish that should somewhat resemble store-bought cucumbers.

Such a recipe is called - "Cucumbers in Bulgarian".

These are very tasty and crispy cucumbers, with onions and carrots added. Combined, this set of garden gifts delivers an amazing range of flavors, turning into a dish of all the vitamins.

Cucumbers with carrots and onions in Bulgarian

Required products (per 1-1.5 liter can): - cucumbers, - cloves of garlic - 2-3 pcs., - onion - head, - carrot (medium size) - 1 pc., - dill - one umbrella, - black pepper - 3-5 peas.

Brine (1 liter of water): - table salt - 1.5 tbsp. l., - granulated sugar - 3.5 tbsp. l., - vinegar (9%) - 90 ml.

Cooking method

  • We wash the cucumbers thoroughly using a sponge. We soak them in clean water and keep in it for 6 to 8 hours. Then we take out and cut off all the tips from both sides.
  • Peel the onions and rinse the carrots. The first one is cut into large rings, and the carrot lengthwise (lengthwise) into 4-6 pieces.
  • We sterilize our jars, boil the lids. Then put a dill umbrella, peas, garlic cloves on the bottom of the glass container. We also send onion rings there.
  • Put the cucumbers cut along the edges in jars, alternating them (if possible) with carrot straws.
  • Pour water into a saucepan, boil it and pour boiling water into the cucumbers. Let stand for about 20 minutes.
  • Then we drain the water and take a liter from it for our brine.
  • We throw sugar and salt into this liter. Stir them and place the pot on the hotplate. When the water boils, reduce the heat and pour vinegar into the brine.
  • Then we pour the resulting brine into the jars and let it brew for 20 minutes, closing the jars with lids.
  • Then we drain the brine again, bring to a boil and pour it back into the jars. Then we roll up the cans with lids and check, putting them on their side, if they are not leaking.
  • Finally, flip the cans over and place them on the lids. Wrap it up with a blanket or blanket and let it cool completely. Done!
