Hello Dear Friends,

Indispensable for our tables, the only garnish of our meals pickled cucumbers...

As a matter of fact, it is quite easy to make this marinade at home.

The most important point to consider for this is that cucumbers (the gherkin) to be as alive as possible. Being alive is our most important trump card against the possibility of softening.

Tips for making picklesat what You can find it here :)

If the water to be pickled is tap water, it must be boiled beforehand, if you add salt while it is hot after boiling, it will be easier to dissolve.


After adding the vinegar and mixing the salt, you should let it cool. After washing and straining your ingredients and filling the jar, add the water.

My preference is for glass jars, enough for a 5 liter jar for this recipe.

    I almost completely followed the recipe. The pickled gherkins I made for the first time turned out to be very professional.

    Hello, I'm going to try this pickled gherkin, but I couldn't get it to be prepared.. Is the water boiling over the cucumbers to be added?

    • Oct. 22, 2017 at 23:39 PM

      Hello, Sevtapci, the water will be boiling, but so that the salt melts easily. After mixing, it should have completely cooled before pouring it on the gherkins. Yours sincerely

The master was going to come tonight I opened the box and the bottom is wet I was shocked today, on the 6th day, I will throw it all away, I am so sorry that I consult the six I wanted to.. Thank you, good evening

    I made the juice of the pickle according to the recipe. The cucumbers were mostly soft within a week, the water was invisibly cloudy. So much so that the cucumber, which did not rest on the glass, did not appear through the cloudiness, such a whitish cloudiness… it seemed like it would poison, I was worried and poured it. I love house pickles, but I'm sorry that I still can't find a recipe I want :/

      Hello, Ms. Suzan, natural and additive-free homemade pickles are definitely white. If you don't play it much after a while, that whiteness will collapse and the water will start to become clear. It's a shame you spilled. The air in the pickle jar may have caused the cucumbers to soften. love.

    I accidentally put the water without boiling. How will it be?

  • Sept. 13, 2013 at 13:49 pm

    The more liters the jar is, the more spoonfuls of salt are placed. In other words, after placing the vegetables in a 5-liter jar, 5 spoons of salt is put.
