I've been regularly preparing this recipe for years because they taste as purchased. My kids' favorites. I warmly recommend them. When you buy pickles, look for the smallest ones so you'll fill jars easily and they look better. 
I bought 1 kilo and 250 grams of pickles and filled 4 jars.

Ingredients for 1 jar:.
  • pickles about 350 g (or as needed)
  • 1 flat tbs salt
  • 1 flat tbs sugar
  • 70 ml white vinegar 9% (food vinegar)
  • 5-6 grains of black pepper
  • 1 bay leaf
  • water as needed to fill jars
  1. The method of preparation is simple and easy.
  2. Wash well pickles and line up in clean jars.
  3. Add all of the above ingredients and fill with water. Seal with lids. 
  4. I pasteurized my jars in my washing machine at 70 C degrees (maximum temperature). If you choose to use this method, put jars in the evening and let the machine do its program, then remove them in the morning.
  5. Other way you can line them on a tray, and put in the oven at 100 C degrees for 15 minutes.
  6. Keep in cold and dark place.
