Why to buy some artificial ones in markets, while you can make your own, tasty dill pickles, without all those chemicals? Here is the recipe, coming from my mum.

Ingredients:

  • 3kg of fresh cucumbers
  • 5 cloves of garlic
  • 3 pieces of fresh horseradish
  • 6 bunches of dill
  • water and salt*

* for 1 litre of water - 1 tablespoon of salt, if the jug is smaller, then automatically 500 ml of water + 1/2 tablespoon of salt.

Preparation:
  1. Wash the cucumbers.
  2. Take a big jar. Put 1 kg of cucumbers inside, so that 1/3 of the jar is full. 
  3. Add 2 cloves of garlic, 1 piece of horseradish and 2 bunches of dill. Add another 1 kg of cucumbers, and another 2 cloves of garlic, 1 piece of horseradish and another 2 bunches of dill. Put the rest of cucumbers, the last clove of garlic, the last piece of horseradish and the rest of the dill on the top.
  4. Take measure jug, put 1 litre of water inside, add 1 tablespoon of salt, stir, pour to the jar. Fill the entire jar with salted water.
