Canning in one place

Although no freezer can not imagine any home and can often be mistaken though during freezing, thawing or keeping food in the freezer.

The freezer is a great place pea, leguminous vegetables, peppers, spinach, chard, fruit juices, blueberries, currants, raspberries, strawberries, etc..

Slightly worse held pumpkin, mushrooms, corn, eggplant, tomatoes, parsley, celery, blackberries, cherries and cherries, plums, apricots, apples, pears, quince, melon, etc., and zucchini, cucumbers and yellow plums should freeze only if it is really necessary.

Berries, berries and other fruits and peppers can freeze it raw, with sugar or without sugar, and mushrooms, peas, corn, leguminous vegetables, spinach, Swiss chard, and root vegetables for the soup must first boil.

It is understood that before freezing fruits and vegetables - ripe, fresh and healthy - should be cleaned and washed thoroughly, divide the amount that is enough for one use, and on the packages, ie. bags for freezing, write content and date of freezing.

Once defrosted foods do not freeze again, if you have time, cook a meal halfway, because it will shorten the cooking time later. However, this will significantly shorten the duration of food.

The durability should always be taken into account. For example, at a temperature of -18 degrees flasks can withstand 4-6 months, apples, pears, quince, melon, mushrooms, cucumbers, peppers, eggplant and vegetable soup for 6-8 months, parsley and celery leaves, green beans, corn, kale, fruit juices, cherries, cherries, strawberries, raspberries, blackberries, currants and blueberries 8-12 months, spinach, Swiss chard and tomatoes 10-12 months ...

Home Canning in a home

Pickling ritual has always been a housewife, but she is turning to the culinary and nutrition-conscious enthusiasts. No wonder, since it preserves flavors paradise ...

Winter food should be stored in a cool, dry, dark place in order to maintain a long - if you are well prepared, the types are good and after a few years

This space is too small that we enumerated recipes, which, after all, has a surprising number of online in any search engine type 'preserves' and you will not have nearly the time to prepare all the delicacies on offer.

Chills has long been preparing for it was one of the few ways to preserve food for the winter. Later cooked to save, because it was cheaper than industrial products, today fit into the trend of returning home and natural diet.

Do not you have your own garden, or good neighbors who do not know where to go with the extra fruit and vegetables when they are already struggling, get a grown organic foods and canning without artificial preservatives and other chemicals. Proponents of natural foods will rebel against adding white sugar, but is already a big step if you only produce food for the winter with the addition of sugar, vinegar and salt, no artificial additives.

The largest number of recipes on the net can be found at the eastern neighbors, because there is, because of tradition, because of a lower standard, canning was developed to the level of art.

We chose two books with something rarer recipes: Gold Nanić Live from society and the country offers VHS book about natural preparation for the winter, a journalist of Radio Pula Budimir Žižović author of 'homemade Istrian food for winter's over 150 recipes. The standard recipes can be found in a number of titles available in most web and 'living' bookstore.

Pickle is the perfect winter mixed salad, and you can save the whole or chopped vegetables

To winter food was good and durable, the most important is hygiene preparation and selection of quality foods, which should not be damaged. And jars must be sound, so as not to burst during sterilization, and when they put the hot content.

All accessories, bottles, rubber bands and lids boil or sterilize before use. Dishes and utensils that you can not sterilize it is important to wash (items after washing or sterilization should not be deleted, but leave to drain). Use plastic instead of metal strainers. Ready-made pickles easily sterilized in the oven, so immerse the jars in a large pot with water, because the money should be recovered with a larger area.

Do you have a house, you will not have a problem with keeping, but in most of today's housing because central heating is too hot, so better keep the pickles in the basement or some other store or in unheated enclosed loggia, which is not heated (open balconies are not good because the preserves frozen). The place where you store food for the winter should be dry (that it does not mold) and dark (winter food to maintain a nice color).

Trends say that vegetables should be pickled in vinegar or vinegar domestic and salted with sea salt, preferably coarse. Are you preparing food for the winter each year, and even more to it than many kinds of foods, to each jar to put the label indicating the contents and date of preparation.

Experienced housewives know that pickles every year just underway, but still occasionally break down knows an occasional bottle - because pickles should be monitored regularly. If you have any blur fluids, mold or other signs of deterioration, pickles should be quickly spent, and there of course and rescue techniques (boiling, subsequent sterilization, relocation to another jar ...).

In our parts are usually prepared fruit juices, jams, compotes and jams, tomato juice, pickled peppers and cucumbers and chutney. However, more imaginative variations that are resourceful entrepreneurs began to pack into decorative containers and sold as authentic Croatian souvenirs available in the deli, souvenir shops and websites.

In the wider local area stores are a wide range specialties and ideas as you mention Pinđur (sauce mixed vegetables), chutney with mushrooms, sweet fruit of all kinds (very sweet dessert, similar to jam, which is in Serbia and Bosnia to serve welcome) olives stuffed with vegetables, goat cheese, etc., pickled wild mushrooms, pickled onions, peppers stuffed with cheese, fruit and fruit cover the brandies, liquors and domestic drinks, pickle (pickled mixed vegetables). From beans and carrot puree can be stored, as well as the domestic version of the product that we know only as industrial (ketchup).

jam with big chunks of fruit preserved more vitamins than the smooth jam

From vine leaves saved a great charm, and in winter you can keep them salted (and plenty of vegetables can preserve in salt water, not vinegar). Cabbage can traditionally sour, but also prepare dishes of mixed vegetables, such as peppers stuffed cabbage. Sweet and savory baby foods prepared without preservatives and naturally grown fruits and vegetables are better than anything you can buy almost.

170 grams of salt

about 1.5 liters of water
more heads of garlic
2-3 tablespoons oil
a few leaves of basil (who does not love, can live without it)

Method of preparation

Canning, as its name implies, food supplies since ancient times, left in for the winter so that she could survive. Today's offers fresh fruits, fruit products and other similar foods and abundant and accessible throughout the year, so the question is why do independently to make pickles. Some pickles are prepared from a purely economic reasons, to save, others have excess fruit which they have grown, and the third a culinary reasons because of choice or for health reasons, proponents of food with less chemicals or other additives, either in farming or in preparation. No matter what your motives were, you will try to be on hand in preparation for the winter, and we will remind you of some good old advice about it.

Area covered fruit is always a multitude of living organisms - microorganisms - many of which can cause disease. Because fruit should be carefully washed. Sturdy and hard fruits should first soak in water for 5-10 minutes, and then wash them under running water. Delicate and fine fruit should be placed in a sieve, and several times he completely immersed in pure water, moving the screen so that water reaches every berry.Fruits should be washed quickly, lest raskvasilo and began to leak juice. Then it should be dried on the cloth, and then clean up.

Fruit should be classified: best fruit to be separated for compotes, and the less beautiful for jams and more.Damaged fruit is not out of the question for ukuvavanje. Choose completely ripe fruit, but not overripe.Fruit for winter may not be wet - so do not make pickles after a rain.

Color of processed fruit in the air, under the influence of oxygen, changing, and vitamins are partly decomposed. Because fruit is best cleaned immediately before preparing food for winter.

The acid from the fruit can be connected with the metal pots, so why should you cook fruit in enameled pots (which enamel is not chipped!) Or those made of stainless steel. If you do not have such dishes, then quickly cook the fruit and immediately remove from the metal containers. Although we do not use copper pots!

Place the required amount of sugar. If you put too little sugar, you will need to cook longer, and thus loses the fruit quality, taste and color. Fruit and sugar measure on a scale, not in containers for measurement.

When the syrup cooked food for winter use, make sure the sugar is dissolved until the end.

Fruit that does not have enough pectin (strawberries, cherries, melons) tend to clot, and then add the juice of cranberries, apples, lemons or naranadži and cook on high heat.

If you place a clotting agent by which considerably shortens cooking time and thus better preserves color, flavor and ingredients for the winter, follow the instructions exactly.

Never cook foods too, but not too short. Do not mix them too, but not too weak.
Ready put pickles in jars whose size depends on the number of family members, so that the entire quantity consumed immediately. Open jam, marmalade and sweet to stand for 2-3 weeks if they are well covered, but they are much better when they are fresh. Winter food prepared with alcohol can be opened and closed again, without fail.
For home canning are best glassware, but we will consider and clay, if you are inside glazed, wood, metal and even if they were completely intact enamel. You should have a wide neck (except for juices) to the ingredients and put them more easily extracted during the winter.
If your pantry (the pantry) is not completely dry, the surface of the jam and marmalade put a layer (3-4 cm) of powdered sugar.
