Zucchini Pickles

And another recipe that I was looking for a long time ago, still having the memory of how good the zucchini in a jar are, sweet and sour as my grandmother used to make them in Ukraine. Their climate does not allow them to cultivate tomatoes, eggplants and peppers and the main canned vegetables are cucumbers and zucchini. I don't know if you've ever tasted it, but I guarantee you won't give up until all the zucchini in the jar are finished :)

I tested the recipe, I made it a month ago and last week I took the test, my husband was very impressed, he didn't know about marinated zucchini either. So I'm definitely going to show you the recipe and I really recommend you try it, it's not hard at all.

Let me tell you what it tastes like - they are crispy, sweet-sour, very similar to some successful canned cucumbers. I go for any food that requires pickles.


10 pieces
choose smaller and younger zucchini, I went to about 1-2 pumpkins in 1 jar, it depends on how big the pumpkins are
3 pieces
that is 3 heads of garlic, you should have about 3-4 garlic cloves in each jar
Whole black pepper
4 tsp
half a teaspoon each in a jar
7 cups
2 tbsp
salt for pickles
3 tbsp
150 ml
9% vinegar

Step 6

Pour the 7 glasses of water into the pan - put it to boil, when it starts to boil add salt, sugar and vinegar. Let them all boil together and then pour them into jars.

To be honest, I don't remember if I got this quantity for all 8 jars or I did before, if it won't be enough, calculate how much you need and make a little more marinade, just respect the proportions.

Step 7

Staple the jars and sterilize them in a larger pot, 10 minutes from the moment the water starts to boil in the pot.

Step 8

After they have boiled, carefully remove them from the pot, check the lids again for air and place them on a towel upside down until they cool well. They are ready in about 2-3 weeks, then you eat them with any favorite food, it went very well with a bean dish.

Good appetite!
