Cooking cucumber salad for the winter:

Step 1: Prepare the cucumbers.

Cooking this salad begins with a selection of cucumbers. Of course, vegetables grown in their own garden are ideal for harvesting, but not everyone has the opportunity to possess them. However, when choosing cucumbers in the store, be careful, it is best to take medium-sized vegetables with pimples, and not smooth giants.
Rinse the selected cucumbers, make sure that their skins are free from damage and dark spots. Chop the clean vegetables in circles, cutting off the ends on both sides.

At the bottom of the sterilized cans, spread the mustard, bay leaf, allspice and black pepper peas. On top of the cans, lay out the infused salad and cover with lids.
Fold the jars of salad in a suitable pan, the bottom of which is lined with a kitchen towel, and pour cold water so that it reaches the shoulders of the jar. Boil the workpiece for 15-20 minutes.
After boiling, take out the jars. Be careful, it has warmed up and you can get burned, use oven mitts or tongs for hot cans. Roll up the covers and turn over the blanks, wrapping them with a towel.
