Cucumbers are great to be consumed during the weight loss process, but also are highly beneficial for the whole body. You can eat them raw or sour if rapidly acidified.
For many people pickles are favorite side dish. In summer we mainly consume the fresh ones, but if you still have a desire for sour pickles, you can easily prepare them. Make sure that the pickles you want to prepare aren’t longer than 12 centimeters – is better to use the longer ones in salads. Choose smaller cucumbers, rinse them well, and place them in a jar.
You will need:
- – 1 Kg of domestic cucumbers
- – 1-2 dcl of white vinegar
- -A tablespoon of salt
- – A sprig of dill
- – A few peppercorns
- – Half a liter of water
Put these spices in the liquid and all together pour it over the cucumbers. Cover the jar with a plate and put it in a sunny place, for example, on the window for two days. When cucumbers slightly change their color, they are ready to be consumed.
