Surely you already rolled up pickled cucumbers, salted. Maybe some kind of salad. But have you tried Korean cucumbers? Not? Then urgently need to fix it. This salad I tried once at a party. I really liked the recipe and I wrote myself.
For the first time, I prepared only one portion, thinking that my men would not appreciate such a piece (they prefer pickled cucumbers more). How wrong I was, the jars went very quickly. This year I decided to close the double portion, so that for the winter just enough. I share the recipe with you. The output of this amount of ingredients approximately 10 cans of 0.5 liters.

It is best to soak cucumbers for a few hours in cold water. Freshly picked cucumbers do not need soaking. They will be very crispy anyway. After soaking. Cucumbers carefully wash and cut into 4 parts. If they are long, pre-cut each cucumber in half across. Fold all the cucumbers large capacity.
Clean carrots and three on a special grater for Korean carrots. If there is no such grater, use a regular large grater. Putting carrots to cucumbers.
Add all the spices and garlic. Mix thoroughly and leave for at least 4 hours. During this time you can take a sample several times and add something to your taste. Perhaps garlic, hot pepper, a little more seasoning or salt, you should like the taste, so feel free to add what you see fit.
In 4-5 hours, the cucumbers will empty a lot of juice, which is what we need. Tightly put cucumbers in the banks on the shoulders.
Put the jars in the pan, so that the water in it covers at least 2/3 of the jars. Put the pot with the cans on the fire. When the water in the pan boils, you can cover the jars with sterile lids, slightly reduce the fire so that the water does not boil much and notice the time. Pasteurized 0.5 liter cans need 10 minutes, liter 15 minutes. At the end of time, we roll up the cans with lids and turn them upside down to check for leaks.
After wrapping the jars and letting them cool completely. In winter, you will be pleasantly amazed by the taste of the salad. He is not ashamed to be put on the holiday table. In addition, there is no need to add something to it.
Enjoy your meal!
