Caviar from podtopolnikov: for the winter and for every day
In lean years, when valuable mushrooms come acrossrarely, lovers of "quiet hunting" begin to pay attention to those that were previously considered junk. In the days of mushroom abundance, for example, the podtopolnikami (they are frosts, ryadoviki or sandpipers) were neglected. Say, and the taste they bitter, and the smell is not the same, and cook a long time, and often collect hard - especially young specimens. However, as soon as other fungi have not grown, many have become interested in caviar from the bottlenecks. For the winter to stock up it does not hurt, and now you can be pampered yourself. Those who previously ignored this mushroom, will have to quickly learn how to properly process it.
Before the caviar is prepared frompodtopolnikov, mushrooms require painstaking processing. Young enough to thoroughly rinse, but the old must be cleaned. And it's better to do it right after they are collected - time will be wasted less. From old specimens, the plates are peeled off, and sometimes the head is scraped, if its surface is hard. Cleaned podtopolniki fold in cold water, which should stay for three days. At the same time, you need to change the fluid at least once a day, and if the sandpipers are mostly old, then twice and thrice. Then the water merges, and the frosts are added to fresh, slightly salted. Most often, the mushroom caviar from the bottles is made on the basis of boiled mushrooms. And the process of cooking lasts long enough - 45 minutes for an eight-liter bucket of prey. However, there are alternative ways, we will discuss them below.
If you do not wait for winter
So, the preparation is carried out, and the caviar frompodtopolnikov intended for consumption in the near future. In this case, you do not need to sterilize the cans, and you can do without vinegar. Boiled mushrooms are poured into a colander. When water drains, they are passed through a meat grinder or blender. Some people prefer to cut them finely so that they are pieces. Two large bulbs stand out on half a kilogram of podtopolniki (not yet cooked). They are cut, fried and added to mushroom puree. There are also introduced two tablespoons of lean oil, five pressed garlic lobules, pepper and salt - and that's it! Keep in the cold of caviar from the podtopolnikov can five days. If desired, you can savor the dish with sour cream, but already when served on the table. If you add it in advance, the shelf life will be significantly reduced.
The process is more complicated if the caviar is prepared frompodtopolnikov for the winter. For her, three bulbs and one carrot are crushed; of them are roasted. Then it is scraped in a blender along with cooked mushrooms. When cooking into water, in addition to salt, carnation and pepper-peas are laid. A tablespoon of weak vinegar (3%) is poured into the mass, and everything is mixed. The calculation of the components is made on a half-kilo of fresh podtopolnikov. At the bottom of the sterile jars are put scalded twigs of parsley and dill alternately with plates of garlic. The hot mushroom caviar is poured over from the podtopolniki, which is covered with horseradish leaves. Banks are hermetically sealed - and into the cellar. In the cool, the caviar will not go bad for a year.
