MultiТasty Winter Foods

Three recipes with seasonal products for a good shape

The seasonal nutrition helps us eat healthier and stay in tune with the natural cycles in nature. Thus, fruit and vegetables are guaranteed to absorb maximum sunlight and substances from the soil in which they are grown. Foods produced locally are especially recommended. They are not only better quality but also much more delicious than the production imported or grown in a greenhouse. Also, seasonal products are subject to much less and light chemical treatment.

Home pickles for 5–8 days

Home pickles

Products:

  • carrot
  • beetroot
  • turnip
  • cabbage (white and red)
  • cauliflower
  • green tomato
  • broccoli
  • celery

How to prepare?

Selected vegetables are peeled and can be mixed several together – for example, carrots, beetroots and turnips, or to make jars only of a single type. Cut the vegetables into strips or circles and add black pepper grains, dill, garlic or onions to your taste. The rule is to add 30 g of sea salt to every 1 liter of water. Boil the water until the salt is completely dissolved, and then leave it to cool at room temperature. Pour over the vegetables, making sure they are fully covered. They need to be underwater all the time, so you can press them down with a stone wrapped in a plastic bag. Finally, cover the jar but do not close it completely. Put the jars in a large baking tin or tray because a small amount of water may leak out during the fermentation process. Start trying them from day 3 until they suit your taste. Pickle is a natural probiotic and is very suitable for the winter season as it aids the immune system, protects against allergies and helps the function of the gastrointestinal tract.
