How to pickle cucumbers for the winter in banks

Salty cucumbers, yes for potatoes, but with salsa - what could be more delicious than this food, familiar from childhood? Recipes for salting vegetables are passed down from generation to generation - from mother to daughter. But even the most delicious dishes periodically become boring, but because the hostess is always not averse to finding out new ways to pickle cucumbers for the winter in banks.

How to choose cucumbers for pickling?

Not every cucumber will be salted. If you do not want to end up with a tasteless watery vegetable, choose cucumbers, following our recommendations.

 

1. Pay attention to the variety: “Nezhinsky”, “Favorite”, “Competitor”, “Voronezhsky”, “Nezhinka”, “Pickling”, “Liliput”, “Paris gherkin”, “German”, “Courage” are excellent. Long greenhouse cucumbers and lettuce varieties are not suitable for pickling: the taste is not the same, and the density of the pulp is unsuitable.

 

2. Consider the size: it is better to pickle small cucumbers, which are 5-12 cm long. Try to stack cucumbers of the same size in jars, then they will salt out evenly.

3Pick out unripe green vegetables, without yellowing, otherwise, by salting them you will get watery, shriveled cucumbers with a lot of large seeds instead of pulp.

 

4. Good in salting cucumbers with black pimples and thick skinned, to determine the degree of density which can be, trying to push it with a fingernail. When this is obtained with difficulty, feel free to buy such cucumbers for pickling.

 

5. The fresher the cucumbers, the more resilient they come out after salting.

 

6. Taste cucumbers: you should not take bitter vegetables, because the bitterness does not go away from them even after salting. Some housewives assure: you can get rid of it by soaking cucumbers in water for 5-6 hours. But we do not advise to take risks: what if this technique does not work?
