How to pickle and pickle cucumbers for the winter in banks

Cucumbers are an integral part of home spins. There are two ways to cook cucumbers: pickling and pickling. To salt or pickle cucumbers for the winter in jars is a matter of taste, but we can say with confidence that each cooking process is amazing.

Calorie Pickles

Many people like pickles in both winter and summer. People who follow the figure are interested in knowing how high-calorie favorite cucumbers can be and whether they can be eaten in large quantities.
The calorie content of pickles (100 grams) is 11.2 kcal. Cucumbers contain a lot of carbohydrates, about 27 percent of the protein in them, and 16 percent of fat.

The composition of pickles includes lactic acid, which is released during fermentation. It has a good effect on the human body: reduces the level of fats in the blood, helps to improve blood circulation, lowers blood pressure, helps the intestines, enriching the necessary bacteria.

Pickle brine will help with constipation, since it acts as a laxative on the intestinal wall, but should not be used during the diet, as it causes a strong feeling of hunger.

People who are obese and have bowel disease are not allowed to use cucumber pickle.

Salted cucumbers with horseradish

The recipe for salting with horseradish is practically no different from others, just some add more interesting spices to create an unusual taste.

  • Cucumbers
  • Horseradish.
  • Black currant.
  • Salt.

Step by step cooking:

  1. Put horseradish and dill at the bottom of the can. Gently spread the cucumbers (it is better to take small cucumbers to lay in layers).
  2. Alternate each layer with currant berries and herbs.
  3. You can prepare a brine from a liter of water and a tablespoon of coarse salt.
  4. Pour cucumbers with fresh pickle.
  5. Close the jar with a lid and leave the cucumbers for about a week.

There is good advice that will help reduce the number of explosive cans. Many people think that if there are a lot of spices, then the taste will be better, but I hasten to upset you - this is not so. Too many spices can trigger an explosion.If the jar remains intact, an excessive amount of seasonings will affect the quality of the product - it may deteriorate and become unusable.
