The recipe for salted cucumbers on mineral water differs little from salting according to the classic recipe with cold water, but the salting process is much faster and the taste of the cucumbers themselves is sharper. Cold salting with a mineral water and gas will make cucumbers tasty, gas bubbles will quickly saturate them with the aroma of herbs and garlic and give a crunch.
Preparation of salted cucumbers on mineral water begins with the preparation of the cucumbers themselves. We take the fruits small or medium, cut off the tips, so the cucumbers will quickly become saturated with brine and salt out faster. Peel the garlic and cut it into plates. If desired, the garlic plate can be crushed until the juice appears, so the cucumbers will be more fragrant.
At the bottom of an enameled pan we put half of a large bunch of dill, a few plates of garlic and cucumbers. So alternate the layers until the end of the pan until the cucumbers run out. Top with dill and prepare the brine. Pour salt into a separate pan and fill it with mineral sparkling water, stir with a spoon until the salt dissolves. Pour the cucumbers with the resulting brine, cover with a plate on top so that the cucumbers do not float, and send them to the refrigerator. Cucumbers salted according to this recipe are ready in 12-14 hours, depending on their size. Ready cucumbers are stored in the refrigerator.
