Cucumbers close almost all hostesses for the winter, because in winter cucumbers can be served with cereals, poultry, and various side dishes. I love cucumbers in any form, especially pickled ones. The grape leaves give the cucumbers a special, pleasant taste. Try to prepare a couple of jars of cucumbers for future use, I’m sure you will like it!
Prepare your ingredients.
In order for the cucumbers to be crispy as a result, they need to be washed and transferred to a large bowl, filled with cold water. Leave the cucumbers in water for 4 hours. During this time, the water can be changed several times. Thus, we will saturate the cucumbers with moisture, as a result, they will turn out to be dense and crunchy.
Wash the jar for the preparation thoroughly with baking soda, then rinse well under warm running water. Sterilize the jar and lid in a convenient way – over steam, in the oven or microwave. Put all kinds of greens, grape leaves at the bottom of the jar.
Fill the jar with cucumbers.
Boil clean water on the stove, pour boiling water into a jar, put a lid on the neck and leave for 10 minutes. After a while, pour the water into a saucepan, bring to a boil and return to the jar, again leave it alone for 10 minutes.
After a while, drain the water into a saucepan, add salt and sugar, boil for a minute and pour in the vinegar.
Return the marinade immediately to the cucumbers. Roll up the jar tightly with a sterile lid, put upside down. Cover the workpiece with a warm blanket or blanket, leave it alone for 24 hours. After the specified time, transfer the workpiece to the pantry.
