Cucumbers in tomato paste with garlic for the winter

Today I want to share a recipe for a delicious winter preparation of cucumbers with tomato paste. Cucumbers turn out crispy, and moderately spicy, with a garlic flavor, tomato sauce is ideal for adding to other dishes: sauces, gravies, roasts, etc.


  • Cucumbers - 2,5 kg
  • Water - 200 ml
  • Tomato paste - 300 ml
  • Garlic - 3 heads
  • Vegetable oil - 0,5 art.l.
  • Vinegar (9%) – 1 tbsp.l.
  • Allspice (with peas) – 10 pcs.
  • Black Pepper (with peas) – 10 pcs.
  • Sugar - 1 tbsp.l.
  • Salt - 0,5 art.l.

Step-by-step cooking recipe

Wash the cucumbers, cut off the tails, pour cold water and leave for 1.5 hours.

Put tomato paste in a cooking pot, add water, vegetable oil, salt and sugar. Stir well until smooth and bring to a boil over medium heat. Boil the sauce, stirring, for 15 minutes from the moment of boiling.

Wash the cucumbers again, dry them slightly and cut them into large circles.

Put cucumber slices, crushed garlic, add black pepper and vinegar into the boiling tomato sauce. Mix well and boil everything together for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Put allspice on the bottom of pre-sterilized jars, fill the jars with hot cucumbers and pour boiling tomato marinade to the top.

Cover the jars with sterile lids and send them to be sterilized in a pot of boiling water (the sterilization time is 15 minutes from the moment the water boils in the pan).

After sterilization, roll up the jars, turn them upside down, wrap them up and leave them to cool completely. Then move the workpiece to a cool, dark place.
