5 kg Gurken (vorbereitet gewogen ) (4.5 lbs cucumbers)
Use only big ripe yellow, but still firm cucumbers. Peel and cut lengthwise, and with a spoon scrape out all seeds.
Cut in strips or chunks and layer them with the salt in a glass or porcelain dish. Leave them sit for 12-24 hours, and then strain them in a sieve, and carefully dry all chunks, again layer them with the onions and herbs and spices in a large glazed ceramic pot or individual mason (canning) jars.
Bring vinegar, water and sugar to a boil on med. heat and pour over the cucumber chunks. After they have cooled cover each glass with wax-paper or Saran wrap.
After about 4 weeks you'll have delicious Senfgurken
