Pickled cucumbers with citric acid circles are garnish cucumbers, the principle of cooking of which I somehow peeped in one TV show. They showed a large plant, which pickles cucumbers for hamburgers. These are really excellent side dishes, which are indispensable in case of emergency, when there is absolutely no time for cooking dinner, but you need to feed the family. On a plate to mashed potatoes and sausages put a pile of sliced cucumbers with onions - and already delicious!
Often housewives use the latest cucumbers for such blanks, which can no longer be attached anywhere. Strongly overgrown marinate in this way, I do not advise, but all the autumn “curse” in the case can be started.

Method of cooking pickled cucumbers with citric acid circles.
When you get tired of rolling salted and pickled cucumbers, when the basement is already filled to capacity, and only overgrown and freaks remain on the beds, it's time to make excellent side dishes pickled in circles.
For this recipe, any non-standard will do - large, slightly overripe, sunburned and curves.
First, as always, wash the vegetables clean, cut off the ass and tails.
Next, cut the vegetables into slices about half a centimeter thick. Too thin slices can fall apart, and thick uncomfortable to eat.
Then we add to the cucumbers the onion head cut by crescents. In a cleanly washed jar we put a standard set of spices for pickling - an umbrella of dill, a few purely washed leaves of black currant, cloves of garlic whole.
Now fill the jar with chopped vegetables, shake them so that they lie down tightly. Hot water will soften the vegetables, so that the banks are not half-empty, you need to pack everything well.
Pour boiling water into cans, leave for 10 minutes, pour into a saucepan. To prevent the jars of vegetables from standing without water, we pour boiling water over them at the time of cooking the marinade.
Add citric acid, granulated sugar, salt and spices - cloves, black pepper, bay leaf, cumin and coriander into a saucepan with drained water. Boil marinade 5 minutes.
Pour boiling water from cans of cucumbers, pour hot marinade, cover with a lid.
Sterilize liter cans 15 minutes after the water boils. Covers twist tightly, turn the banks upside down. After cooling, remove the workpiece in a dry and dark place for storage. Pickled cucumbers prepared in this way can be stored in an apartment. I advise you to choose a storage place away from the battery and the sun's rays. The optimum temperature should not be more than 18 degrees.
The blanks will “ripen” in a month, by this time the cucumbers will be saturated with marinade and will become very tasty, crunchy. Enjoy your meal!
