    Crush the berries should be a wooden rolling pin or "tolkushkoy" for mashed potatoes.

    Now about sugar. Sugar in viburnum is added in a ratio of 1: 1. This is usually the standard rate. But we add a little more, for 500 grams of viburnum, I added 750 grams of sugar.

    I rub with a skin and stones that all useful vitamins have remained. I use such viburnum in winter for making tea. After I brewed tea, filter it through a strainer. Bones and skin remain in the strainer.

    Sugar pour in berries and continue to push the berries with a rolling pin. I repeat that I use berries together with bones of sandpaper.

    If you add sugar and berries in a jar, fill all with boiling water and sterilize the jars with compote for 10 minutes.

    Pure organic

    Good afternoon, readers of Irina's blog! It is simply impossible to overestimate the benefits of red viburnum. A jar of jam from its fruit will become a real must have in winter. At the same time, it is not necessary to make preparations for the purpose of recovery. Viburnum berries have an indescribable taste: bright rich, with a slight bitterness. I agree with Irina, that there is nothing better than to go home from a creaking frost and warm yourself for a mug of fragrant tea with viburnum jam. Therefore, I invite you, dear readers, to get acquainted with simple and best recipes for harvesting viburnum for the winter.

    But I would like to start with the fact that viburnum (lat. Viburnum) is a plant that has been used in herbal medicine for a long time. There are about 160 species of shrubs, distributed mostly in the northern hemisphere.Many species of this plant are only decorative flowering shrubs. The fruits of red viburnum can be used in food for the prevention of various diseases (mostly colds).

    My childhood memories of viburnum are associated with the first snow and bullfinches that flock to eat berries. In Ukraine, viburnum is a favorite plant and personifies natural beauty. In the spring, her flowers in the form of fluffy umbrellas resemble the headdress of a bride, and in the autumn the plant is pleasing to the eye with bright red fruits that hang on the branches right up to the frost. In ancient times, the plant was called the "wedding tree", so the festive tables and dishes were decorated with branches. And according to the old custom, the bride gave her embroidered towel with a plant pattern, self-embroidered. But viburnum - not only bright berries, but also a wonderful medicinal plant.

    Healing properties

    The benefits of viburnum health is achieved through a unique composition. One small berry contains a double dose of vitamin C, which citrus fruits are rich in.

    In addition, about 30% of invert sugar (a chemical mixture of fructose and glucose) is present in the fruit. This substance is the main component of natural honey. Trimolin has less effect on the body than pure sucrose, so eating Kalina is much more beneficial.

    Berry picking rules

    When to pick viburnum berries? Before getting acquainted with the basic recipes for harvesting viburnum for the winter, I would like to remind you when it is better to pick berries. It is recommended to wait for the first frost when the fruits of the plant are poured with juice and freeze slightly.

    Few people know that this advice is also explained by the fact that under the influence of low temperatures the bitterness of viburnum disappears and its taste becomes more subtle and pleasant. Therefore, if suddenly your friends say that they do not like viburnum, it means that they just tear it off ahead of time.

    Another indicator that the fruits have ripened is their bright blood-red hue (without green streaks). Kalina can be frozen, dried, make jams and jellies, jams, juices.

    Popular homemade recipes

    When I decided to make the preservation, I realized that I needed simple recipes how to prepare Kalina for the winter. In addition, they should be quick and easy to prepare. I think that many girls also do not want to mess around in the kitchen for a long time. Especially now, the last autumn warm days, when I want to walk more in the parks. After reviewing the golden recipes for viburnum blanks for the winter, I chose the easiest and most interesting ones to share with you, dear readers.

    Berry Jelly

    Everyone knows that all the vitamins, essential oils and macronutrients are preserved in raw form in the berries.Therefore, first of all I was looking for recipes for harvesting viburnum for the winter without cooking. In this case, the jelly from the fresh fruits of the plant is the most useful, simple and fast. This recipe is suitable even for beginners who have not yet grasped the secrets of conservation.

    For the manufacture of viburnum jelly for the winter without cooking it is necessary to sort the harvested berries and pour boiling water over them. At this stage it is important to remember a little secret that will significantly simplify the cooking process itself.

    Viburnum fruits should be kept for at least 5 minutes in hot water. This time is enough for the skin to become soft and the berries to easily choke. At the same time, remember that if you perederzhat viburnum in boiling water, it will not harden later.

    After 5 minutes, you need to shift the fruit into a sieve and start crushing them with a spoon. At the rate of 1: 1, add sugar to the berry puree and stir until it is completely dissolved. The resulting thick mass is poured into the banks and leave for further solidification.

    Boil it is not necessary, because at the expense of a large amount of pectin in the composition of viburnum berry mashed potatoes will become gelatinous in a natural way. The finished jelly can be stored in the refrigerator for about 3 months. I am sure that it will end much earlier, so reserve yourself for the future.

    Raw grated viburnum jelly can also be mixed with honey in proportions of 1: 2. Read about the healing properties of this recipe can be in an article previously published in the blog - Kalina with honey.

    Homemade candy

    When I was actively involved in sports, I had to eat every three hours. Unfortunately, I did not always have time to fully eat. And it was important for me to find an alternative snack option that would be useful, nutritious and, of course, tasty. Since it was hard for me to give up sweet, I decided to look for a recipe from all-natural ingredients.

    Home-made fruit candy is the very same unique product that simultaneously charges the body with energy, protects from stress, improves mood.

    All this is achieved due to the fiber, natural ingredients, vitamin C in high concentrations.

    To prepare such a treat is quite simple. To do this, thoroughly rinse the collected berries of viburnum and pour boiling water on them for 4-5 minutes. After that, the fruit must be boiled until it becomes soft.

    The boiled viburnum berries should be rubbed through a sieve so as not to come across seeds in the candy, and add sugar or honey in proportions of 1: 1. The resulting mixture should be boiled before acquiring the consistency of the batter (as for pancakes). For the final stage, it is necessary to cover the baking tray with a silicone mat and place the marshmallow on it. Now it remains to be patient and wait for the readiness of the berry dessert. In the oven, the marshmallow must be dried for 5 hours, while remembering that the fire must be weak. For better ventilation, I recommend leaving the oven door ajar.

    The degree of readiness is very easy to determine: the pastille does not stick to the fingers.

    The cooled mixture can be cut into plates or rolled into rolls, which are very convenient to take with you as a healthy and healthy snack.

    With a cold, debilitating dry cough, tea with one tablespoon of viburnum jam helps well. This drink should be taken 3-4 times a day. When fever in tea with berries, you can add 3 tablespoons of honey.

    This tea with viburnum helps to quickly cope with headaches.I myself know how well a cup of aromatic tea with a berry mixture relaxes after a hard day’s work. Perhaps, this is an excellent anti-stress remedy, which can be compared only with the scratching of the soft tummy of a purring cat.
