Pickled cucumbers for the winter without vinegar: they will stay crisp and firm

To keep canned cucumbers crisp and firm in a jar, vinegar is usually added. But in this way, the vegetable loses all its benefits. Therefore, it is worth using the following technology, which does not have this preservative, but has a lot of greens and fragrant fruit leaves.

The idea of making vinegar-free pickles for the winter is published on the fayna_kitchen Instagram page. Remember that the jar with the brine needs to be screwed up very quickly.

3. Leave the jars for 3 days in hot weather or 4 days in cool weather. The jars can be kept open or lightly covered with nylon lids. It is better to put bowls or rags under the jars, as they will ferment and leak.

4. After the specified period of time, pour the water from the jars into a large saucepan and bring to a boil.
