Quick pickled cucumbers in a pumpkin: Directions

Step 1

Scrub the cucumbers well and soak them in very cold water with ice for 2-3 hours to make them crunchier. Cut off ends and poke with a toothpick to ensure that the cucumbers are pickled all the way through.

Step 2

Wash a large pumpkin well and cut off the top. Remove the seeds and flesh with a spoon to make room for pickles.

Step 3

Fill the pumpkin with cucumbers, dill and currant leaves in layers, add allspice and black pepper, bay leaves and crushed garlic.

Step 4

Dissolve salt in water and pour the brine into the pumpkin so that it covers the cucumbers. Place the cut-off top back in place to cover the pumpkin, and leave it in a cold place for 1-2 days. After the waiting is over, enjoy!
