Super Quick Pickles / Brzinski kiseli krastavci

I came up with this to use up a few sad cucumbers that were sitting alone and forgotten deep inside the fridge. I had a few other odds and ends around the house I’ve decided to throw in just for fun.

These pickles will keep in your fridge for up to a month, which makes such quick pickling a great way to extend shelf life of veggies which have started to lose their glory.

INGREDIENTS:

(Yields 2 jars / 0.68 EUR per jar / 1.35 EUR for all)

3 large pickling cucumbers or 1-2 regular cucumbers (0.53 EUR)

3 large carrots(0.20 EUR)

1 large onion (0.10 EUR)

2 garlic cloves (0.07 EUR)

1 small piece of ginger (0.07 EUR)

1 cup apple cider vinegar (0.33 EUR)

1-2 cups water (–)

2 tbsp sugar(0.01 EUR)

1 tsp salt (0.01 EUR)

Pinch of red pepper flakes (0.03 EUR)

METHOD:

Give cucumbers a good scrub and slice them into thin coins. I didn’t bother peeling the cucumbers and just carved out anything suspicious looking. Peel carrots, onion, garlic and ginger and cut it all very thinly. Divide the veggies between two jars.

In a small saucepan, mix together vinegar, 1 cup of water, sugar, salt and red pepper flakes, then bring to a boil. Divide liquid between the jars and, if necessary, add a bit more water so everything is fully submerged. Refrigerate the closed jars for at least a day before using, so all the flavours have time to mingle.

Ovo sam smislila da iskoristim par tužnih krastavaca koji su već neko vrijeme samovali na dnu frižidera. Imala sam još par drugih stvarčica koje sam odlučila ubaciti sa krastavcima da stvari budu zanimljivije.

Ovakvi kiseli krastavci mogu stajati u frižideru do mjesec dana. Radi toga je ovo brzo kiseljenje super način za oživjeti bilo koje povrće koje je već pomalo na izdisaju.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 2 tegle / 5,06 kn po tegli / 10,11 kn kn za sve)

3 velika krastavca za kiseljenje ili 1-2 obična krastavca (4,00 kn)

3 velike mrkve (1,50 kn)

1 veliki luk (0,75 kn)

2 češnja češnjaka (0,50 kn)

1 mali komadić đumbira (0,50 kn)

1 šalica jabučnog octa (2,50 kn)

1-2 šalice vode (–)

2 žlice šećera (0,10 kn)

1 žličica soli (0,01 kn)

Prstohvat sušenog čilija u pahuljicama (0,25 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Dobro izribajte krastavce i narežite na tanke novčiće. Ja ih nisam gulila, već samo sam izrezala sve dijelove koji su mi bili malo sumnjivi. Ogulite mrkvu, luk, češnja i đumbir te sve narežite jako tanko. Podijelite povrće između dvije staklenke.

U malo lončiću zakuhajte ocat, 1 šalicu vode, šećer, sol i čili. Podijelite tekućinu među staklenkama, a po potrebi nadopunite sa još malo vode kako bi svo povrće bilo potopljeno. Prije upotrebe spremite staklenke u hladnjak barem na jedan dan, kako bi se svi okusi prominglali.
