Place spices and hot peppers on the bottom of the jar, compact the cucumbers tightly. Pour the brine over the vegetables and leave to infuse for 3-4 days at room temperature.

Cloudiness of the brine and cucumbers indicates that the preserved food has already fermented. The next step is to rinse the cucumbers and the jar.

Place the cucumbers and fill them with clean drinking water. Roll up the jar with a lid, sterilized with boiling water. Keep an eye on the preservation for seven days: if fermentation has not begun, the jars can be put away in the pantry or cellar.
