  1. Great video! That part of a plant, we call the umbel in english. But most people would just use the word 'dill' for any part of the dill plant.

  2. that is really and i mean REALLY insane low amount of salt, usually we use pickling salt or coarse salt and at least 10 times what he did add, there should be enough salt to make u catch high blood pressure, also we let it ferment for like 3 to 4 days outside the fridge.
    also, that is really low amount of water, the water should reach the lid or the cucumber will dry out and u should add more after after 24 hours for the water that was absorbed by the cucumbers, and that explains why i keep the tips on to avoind the pickles getting very watery.

  3. videos' editing is too spastic imo, i feel like boris should just take more time for each video instead of churning them out so quickly

  4. What's stopping us from adding all sorts of spices? hot mexican spices for example

  5. Never seen anyone cut the ends off, or using a blackcurrant leaf

  6. Boris: "Americans must be very good at fractions."

    Me: <laughs in public education system and unmanaged dyscalculia>

  7. The inclusion of black currant leaves, though contributing to taste, is not practical in some US states due to numerous statewide bans (the plant is considered a threat to the logging industry).
