Peel the onions and carrots and rinse well, then cut the vegetables into circles.

Step 2: put the vegetables in jars.
Put horseradish leaf, dill umbrella, bay leaf and allspice on the bottom of prepared cans.
Then lay the prepared cucumbers vertically so that the cans are tightly filled.
Put onion rings and carrots on top. A lot is not necessary, 5-7 slices of carrots and 3-5 onions are enough.

Pour boiling water over the cucumbers in jars, cover and let stand 15-20 minutes.

Pour the jar of cucumbers with the finished marinade, wrap them tightly with a blanket or blanket, and let it cool for about a day.
When the prepared cucumbers with carrots and onions have cooled, you can remove the jars with them in the pantry, away from heat and light.
