Method of preparing salad "Nezhinsky" from cucumbers for the winter
We soak fresh cucumbers for the "Nezhinsky" salad in cold water for 2-4 hours, rinse, cut off the ends. Cut the cucumbers into 4 mm thick circles.
Thoroughly wash the canning dishes, sterilize or dry them in the oven, boil the lids. At the bottom of each jar we put one bay leaf, a few peas of allspice and black pepper. You can also add a dill umbrella.
Fill the jars up to half with sliced cucumbers. We put vegetables quite tightly. If you put it loosely, then after filling with water, the cucumbers will float up and gather under the lid, and the bottom will be an "empty" brine.
Cut the onions into half rings or rings 2-3 millimeters thick. We put the chopped onion in the jars next to the cucumbers.
Clean dill, shake off the water. We cut into the "Nezhinsky" salad only tender greens without coarse twigs. Place the chopped dill in each jar.
We fill the jars with sliced cucumbers to the top.
Pour salt and granulated sugar equally into each jar. One half-liter jar needs about нужно teaspoon of coarse table salt and ½ teaspoon of granulated sugar.
Next, pour vinegar into the jars. You can use regular 6% vinegar or take apple cider vinegar or wine vinegar.
We boil the spring water, add the jars to the top. Vegetables must be packed tightly so that they do not float. The container needs to be filled with vegetables, not reaching the neck, 1.5-2 centimeters.
We cover the jars with prepared lids, cover with a terry towel and let stand for about 20 minutes.
We put a towel on the bottom of the container for sterilization, put the jars so that they do not come into contact with each other. Pour water heated to 65 degrees Celsius. Bring to a boil, sterilize in boiling water for 10 minutes. We screw the lids tightly and turn the blanks upside down.
When the jars have cooled to room temperature, store the cucumber salad "Nezhinsky" for the winter in a cool pantry or cellar. Bon appetit and pantries full of you!
