Cooking cucumbers with garlic for the winter:
Step 1: prepare the cucumbers.
Rinse the cucumbers thoroughly and peel them. Then cut the vegetables into thin slices. The thinner the better.

Prepare the cans by washing, sterilizing and drying each.
Arrange the cucumber and garlic salad in jars, adding dill to each bay leaf and umbrella.
Close your jars tightly and put them in a pan with a special tray or towel at the bottom, pour cool water 2/3 high and put on a slow fire. Boil the cans with the workpieces for 15 minutes (this is the time that the jars need to withstand after the water boils).

Serve cucumbers with garlic as a salad appetizer for meat, poultry or fish. And paired with mashed potatoes, they form an almost perfect side dish. Be sure to try it.
