How to cook pickle with barley for the winter
Tomatoes, cucumbers and onions are washed with cool, running water, then diced mode, and three carrots on a grater (large). Send the vegetables to the pan, add salt, sugar, vegetable oil.
Put the saucepan with the vegetables on the fire, simmer for 20 minutes. The fire must be average! Pearl barley is boiled in advance and after 20 minutes of cooking vegetables, send the barley (not raw!) To the pan.
Simmer another 10 minutes. Now add the tomato paste, mix, if the liquid gives a little more to boil.
At the end, we add table vinegar, taste it, because the tomato is different and the taste does not always match, so if necessary we add salt or granulated sugar, which you will not have enough for harmony and balance of taste.
We disassemble the billet in jars, cover with lids, put in a container with hot water, sterilize 10 minutes after boiling. If you doubt that the banks will stand all winter and do not deteriorate, add a pinch of citric acid in the jars. After we roll up the cans with the key for preservation. We check the quality of can closure, turning them upside down.
I wish you all bon appetite and delicious wintering!
