Nowhere has culinary skills come close to alchemy as in the preparations for the winter! Not only keeping food edible, but also changing their taste for the better is a real art that requires skill, thoroughness, accuracy and impeccable adherence to technology.
People have long learned how to prepare food for future use, using various techniques and methods for this. After all, preparing for the winter is the best way to preserve the summer, but it is not only fruit and berry preserves and pickled vegetables! Salted and pickled mushrooms, dried fruits, berries and fruits, deep-frozen products - all this is also "canned food"!
However, common to all types of preparations for the winter is the need to create conditions under which harmful bacteria and microorganisms stop their vital activity: freeze, dry, salt, pickle, alcoholize or sugar.
Whatever products and in whatever way you decide to prepare, be extremely vigilant: follow the rules of canning and strictly follow the recipes obtained only from reliable sources!
