The subtleties of cooking recipes icebox pickles


Quick F from the package

Methods for cooking icebox pickles differ little from pickle recipes, but one significant difference is for lightly salted cucumbers cooked much faster. Soaked for 3-4 hours, kept in hot brine for 2-3 days, and in cold brine — 8-10 hours. Preference should be given to small cucumbers and do not stack them tightly. Otherwise, they will be poorly saturated with brine. Cucumbers salted with the obligatory access of fresh air in a jar or saucepan. For cucumbers, you will need oppression — a Fermentation Jar, a lid, or a plate with a load in the form of a stone or a container of water.
