What to make pies from in winter

How to save granulated sugar in blanks

The apples ripened. And now, in the evenings, everyone sits and peels, and they cut apples, and they heat the stove hotter, so that they can dry and cook more.

Grushovka Moskovskaya, Anis, Antonovka are going for drying. Papirovka, Melba and the same Antonovka are good in compotes, and Cinnamon striped, Pepin saffron, Borovinka, Kitayka - they make the most delicious apple jam. A lot of sugar has already been used up, and everyone is full - they have crunched their fill, and everything is boiled: jams, marmalades, compotes, jelly and preserves, and sacks of dried apples grow in the corner - and the apples keep going and going into the house. Where are you, goat, to whom our wonderful Inna Churikova in the film “Ryaba Chicken” brought buckets with ruddy and striped liquid apples, - eat, my dear. We don't have such a goat. Therefore, you yourself will have to get out in the most prosaic way: to make blanks that require a minimum investment of time, sugar, and preferably without sugar at all. Today we will make stocks of apples for filling pies according to proven and quick recipes. Apples - any, but better - Antonov's.

Recipe 1. Cut the apples into slices, add sugar, mix and leave for a day to let the juice stand out. Then we will slowly cook until the slices, not necessarily all, become transparent. Put it in sterile jars, roll it up. For 3 kg of apples, only 1 kg of sugar is required. It works well with 700 g of sugar.

Recipe 2. The apples cut into slices will be dipped in small portions into boiling water. After 1.5 - 2 minutes, catch them with a slotted spoon and immediately put them in sterile jars, covering them with seaming lids. Periodically, you need to tap the bottom of the can on the table so that the apples are tamped down and more of them fit. When the jar is almost full, fill it with syrup as much as it will fit. The syrup is prepared in the same water in which the apples were blanched, add 300 g of sugar to 1 liter of water. Usually 200 - 300 g of syrup is enough for a three-liter jar. Roll up the jar immediately. The apples are extremely aromatic and so tasty that in winter it is often not a matter of pies.

Recipe 3. Blanched, as in the previous recipe, pour the slices not with syrup, but with pre-prepared hot - 90 - 95 degrees - apple juice. In this case, we will do without sugar, but the cans must be pasteurized at a temperature of 85 degrees: a liter - for 15 minutes, a three-liter - 30 minutes. If the apple juice is obtained from a steam juicer, then you do not need to pasteurize, you can immediately roll it up. These apples will be used not only for pies, but also for slices of bread for tea.

Recipe 4. Apples in currant juice. Red currant juice, squeezed out on any juicer, including through a nylon stocking, pour into the jar to half the volume. Put the halves or quarters of apples in jars so that they are completely covered with juice, and 1.5 - 2 cm of juice remains on top. Sterilize jars (0.5 to 2 liters) in boiling water for 25 to 30 minutes. These apples are suitable for open pies - just sprinkle them with sugar when baking, and use the juice to make a cream.

Recipe 5.
Apple shavings. Peel the apples, cut them into shavings on a plastic grater. The shavings, until they have darkened, are immediately placed in jars, and on top you can pour 50 - 100 g of sugar. Sterilize in boiling water: half-liter cans - 20 minutes, liter cans - 30 minutes. During sterilization, the mass greatly increases in volume, so the chips must be placed on 3/4 of the can's volume. This piece works well for puff pastries. The peel removed from the apples can not be thrown away. First, it can be dried and made into morning tea in winter. You don't get fat from this tea. Secondly, this peel can be dipped in water, in which the apple slices will blanch, as indicated in the previous recipes. It will turn out more nourishing. It goes without saying that in all recommended recipes, apples must be cored.

The history of the origin of the cobbler dates back to the first settlers from England who reached the shores of America.

In fact, it does not quite look like a pie, the main component in it is fruits, which are soloed in the dessert, and a small amount of dough only complements them.

The next step is to melt the butter and pour it into a baking dish.

Then the dough is poured into the butter. Just pour it out, no need to stir.

Finally, peach pieces are spread over the mixture of dough and butter. Again, you don't need to mix anything - add it and that's it! The cooking gods and oven fairies will do it for us.

We send our workpiece to be baked for 35-40 minutes at a temperature of 180-200 degrees.

A ready-made dessert with a crispy golden crust, tender, melting inside, with an amazing creamy-fruity aroma.

Served warm, with two or three scoops of ice cream, which will melt on our cobbler like belated spring snow, taking us back to memories of delicious flowers.

How to extinguish lime correctly

Lumps (lumps, powder) of limestone are quicklime. In order to use it to whitewash the trees, it must be extinguished. The name of the procedure is not accidental: when water is added, a violent reaction occurs, in which heat is generated. Therefore, it is necessary to extinguish lime, strictly observing the rules in order to avoid burns.

Put lime in a clean, deep container (for example, a bucket) and fill it with cold water. For getting fluffs the components are mixed in a 1: 1 ratio. A reaction will immediately begin, in which the mixture "hisses", splashes and heats up. This is a boiling process that can take up to an hour. You need to wait until the procedure is over and after that you can gently stir the contents with a wooden stick. Lime for whitewashing trees is ready.

Important! During the interaction of water and lime, the slaking temperature can reach 150 ° C. Therefore, work with lime should be very careful. It is advisable to do this with gloves and goggles.

For cooking lime dough 1 part of lime should account for 1-1.5 parts of water. Lime milk obtained by mixing 1 part of lime and 3 parts of water.

How to make the right compost?

Many people believe that composting is a simple matter: put branches, leaves and other organic waste in a box or heap, cover it and wait for it to ripen. Simple, but not quite.

Properly prepared compost will help the soil to restore vitality and increase fertility, and improve its structure. In practice, every farmer knows exactly how to make compost, and prepares it according to his own - the only correct recipe. In fact, there are a lot of options: they include various ingredients, additives, and are prepared aerobically and anaerobically. It is impossible to describe each in detail in one article, so we will focus on the main ones, time-tested and thousands of farmers.

Properly prepared compost will help the soil to restore vitality and increase fertility, improve its structure

I foresee the question: why make compost at home, because now you can buy it? Of course, you can buy. If only you are sure of the decency of the manufacturer. Otherwise, you can not help the earth, but harm it. Only by making the right compost with your own hands, you can be 100% sure that this is real "garden gold".

What you can compost

  • cut grass
  • fallen leaves
  • animal manure and bird droppings
  • peat
  • sleeping tea and coffee
  • eggshells, not heat-treated
  • trimming raw vegetables and fruits

Cuts of raw vegetables and fruits can be composted

  • thin branches
  • paper, feathers, natural fabrics (shredded)
  • straw, sawdust, shavings, seed husks.

What you can't compost

  • vegetables and fruits after heat treatment
  • diseased plants
  • perennial and seeded weeds

Weeds with seeds cannot be composted.

  • synthetic fabrics and materials
  • peel from citrus fruits.

There is endless controversy over additives such as, sorry, human, dog and cat faeces. We will leave this question to the personal discretion of the owners of the compost heap - decide for yourself what and how to make compost. Do you think that such an additive will improve the quality of the finished compost - please! If not, just don't add them. There is no consensus on such additives as the remains of milk, fish, meat, fat and bones.

Compost matures

I will mention one more question that worries many - is it possible to put apples in the compost? In the opinion of practicing farmers, the answer is unequivocal: it is possible, it has been tested in practice. If the compost is made according to the rules, the temperature in it reaches + 60 ° C and above, parasitic fungi die under these conditions.

Organic waste can be roughly divided into groups:

  • Nitrogenous: These include manure, poultry droppings, grass, raw vegetable and fruit waste.
  • Carbonaceous: these are straw, leaves, sawdust, grass, paper, cardboard.

Compost - how to cook

Lay the scraps of branches, chips on the bottom of the container - they will act as drainage.

Composting. Photo from the site ydobreniam.ru

Remember: each layer of waste should be 30-50 cm, then a layer of soil 5-10 cm, then again the ingredients. The more different types of organic waste we use, the higher the quality of the finished product will be. The word compost is translated as "composite", which means that it is impossible to make it from one component. Try composting entirely from grass. As a result, you will get either hay or a slippery rotting mass.

The more different types of organic waste we use, the higher the quality of the finished product will be.

For example, a fertilizer from the manufacturer called Chicken Compost. I was really afraid of what it was made of) I look at the composition: peat, chicken droppings, straw, sawdust and other organic additives. So don't be afraid to get creative - put everything in your compost heap that will benefit the finished product.

A richer and more complete compost is obtained, in which plants are laid that contribute to the rapid formation of humus: chamomile, yarrow, valerian, dandelion. Nitrogen and carbonaceous waste should alternate in layers, as well as dry and wet. To speed up the decomposition process, you can water the pile with a solution of bird droppings or mullein.

Do I need to mix the compost

Yes need. The entire mass is enriched with oxygen, the layers are mixed, decomposition occurs faster, so it is easier to control the degree of moisture in the compost. The more often you shovel, the sooner you will get a mature product.

How to know if the compost is ripe

The compost mass should be crumbly, moist and dark in color. And most importantly, mature compost should smell like forest soil.

When is the best time to compost

There are no strict frameworks here: you can lay layers of organic matter from the very spring, as they become available. In autumn, the harvested tops and fallen leaves are added to the compost. By the way, there are ways to make compost from leaves in a few days!

Fallen leaves can be sent to the compost bin

Did you not have time to lay the compost heap, and it is already winter outside? No problem! Advances in science allow us to compost in winter. According to the assurances of the manufacturers of EM drugs, the finished product can be obtained in 2 months.

To prepare quick compost, you will need food waste, earth (10% of the waste volume) and a solution of an EM preparation (Tamir, Urgas, Baikal M1 or any other).

Preparation Baikal EM-1. Photo from the site cveti-rasteniya.ru

In a hermetically sealed container, put a handful of waste corresponding to the volume of the earth, moisten it with an EM solution and close it. And so on until the container is full.

You can choose preparations to accelerate the maturation of compost in our catalog, which combines the offers of large garden online stores. See a selection of drugs.

The number of containers is not limited and directly depends on the amount of food waste available) The smaller the embedded particles of organic matter, the faster the decomposition process goes. The container should be located in a room with a temperature not lower than + 15 ° С. If all conditions are met, EM compost is ready in 2 months. Naturally, the use of EM preparations makes it possible not only to obtain compost quickly at any time of the year, but also to significantly improve its nutritional properties.

The result of the work invested. Reasonable work is always paid for with positive emotions.

Discussion in our group on VKontakte:

Marina Ivanova: I have been thinking about making compost for a long time. It is a pity that the container is not described, in which all this good is stored and mixed. Yes, can someone tell me who is standing where (sun, shadow). Most importantly, what does maturing compost smell like?
Irina Furzikova: I never make compost, I think it is inappropriate to carry all the grass first in a heap from the whole garden, and then back from the heap. All the weeded or mown grass goes to add leeks (for a larger bleached leg) or in the aisle of potatoes (retains moisture and as additional hilling), I can fold it under currant or raspberry bushes, raspberries love decaying residues.
Raisa Kirgintseva: Marina, never bought any fertilizer. After all, nature itself gives everything

Raisa Kirgintseva: Very simple and convenient: you put it on top. and at the bottom you open the latch and the finished, recycled compost comes out, there is no better fertilizer. I have such a box where no one walks, so that it does not interfere and the children do not climb.
Raisa Kirgintseva: I copied this box from the useful advice "garden, vegetable garden". And the first time I saw in the cartoon "Peppy Pig" - a useful cartoon, by the way.
Raisa Kirgintseva: And before, I used barrels, poked holes in the bottom and pulled out the finished fertilizer.

Marina Ivanova: Irina, the point is not to put the grass somewhere, but to bring the earth to a more or less normal state, so that at least something would grow on it. Mother has earth - pots of clay, pure clay. And there is also a lot of cleaning waste.
Irina Furzikova: Marina, and cleaning, and waste under a shovel into potatoes or under bushes or apple trees, and into raspberries. The return on such utilization in the same year, and the next year in this place, the land is much better.Worms cannot be overfished in the spring, they are teeming. So why breed them in a box when you can under an apple tree or in a garden bed?
Marina Ivanova: Irina, nooo, we can't do that, too little space. The grandmother of the fazenda had 10 acres, and they did it there. And I want to take a shovel off my mother and put new soil out of the compost instead.)
Tatyana Ivanova: Irina, I also read the opinion that this is extra work - you must immediately put it on the garden bed. And then plant something on it and that's it)
But they persistently write about these compost heaps ... and I don't understand how to mix it ... and how to pull it out from below, if there are branches there.
