I would emphasize that you choose the volume of the cucumbers on your own. I must say I prefer those little ones.

Full each jar with cucumbers, and cram them well into it.

Put some onion circles between cucumbers. The choice about quantity of onion you’ll make on your own.

Add also 5-6 peppercorns into each jar.

I’ve seen many people adding fresh dill, cloves of garlic, white mustard seeds when preparing this recipe, so if you prefer such additions, don’t hesitate to put them as well.

Put vinegar, salt and sugar into a large bowl, and then stir well so that salt and sugar dissolve well.

Full jars with such solution, and pour some fresh water into the jar space that remained available.

Shut lids well, and arrange jars into a large boiling pot.

Pour some water into the pot that will reach the top of the jars.

Boil it at low temperature, and leave jars into it approximately for an hour.

Finally, witch off cooker, and put aside jars to cool down for couple of hours.

Just try this recipe, and you’ll get some perfect homemade salad that won’t cost much, but is also excellent.
