 How to store preserves and pickles in the country in winter

Procurement of homemade pickles, vegetable snacks, compotes for the winter is one of the most important things at the time of harvest. The main challenge is also how to properly store stocks. It is often easier to do this in the country house than in the apartment, since there is more space, therefore, it is easier to comply with the correct conditions.

Lack of light sources

A very important condition for storing spins is keeping them in the dark. Direct sunlight or even just constant exposure to the light contributes to heating, and fermentation processes can begin in the cans, bacteria multiply, and mold appears.

The product can lose its taste or even become dangerous.

Therefore, all workpieces must be placed in a dark cellar, closet, a special room without windows, or in lockers with tightly closing doors in a cool room.

Heat

One of the main conditions for preserving the crop is the correct temperature regime. Everyone knows about the property of water to expand when freezing. The freezing point, for example, of pickle with cucumbers or tomatoes, is from -6 to -8 degrees. When freezing and subsequent heating, the jars will begin to crack and burst, and fermentation processes will begin in their contents. You cannot eat such products.When storing in a cellar, you must make sure that it is warm enough so that the temperature regime is stable, and even in severe frosts, the temperature does not fall below 0.

Otherwise, you should think about warming the room.

Too high a temperature also contributes to the fact that the workpieces begin to deteriorate and are not worth the due date. The optimal upper limit for long-term storage is considered to be a temperature of 18-20 degrees.

Shelf life

The shelf life of preservation depends directly on the correctness of the preservation technology and on the observance of light and temperature conditions. At a temperature of 0-10 degrees, cans with blanks are stored for 10-12 months. At an average room temperature (20-24 degrees) in a dark place - 3-5 months.

When preparing for preservation, you should carefully consider the recommendations in recipes for the amount of salt, the time for sterilizing dishes, the selection of spices, etc., otherwise the risk of getting a spoiled product increases.

It is imperative to check whether there is a cloudy sediment inside the cans, plaque on food, mold, and large quantities of gas bubbles. These are sure signs that the product is spoiled, and then it does not matter at all how long it has stood, it is better to throw it away.

Freezing as a way to preserve sorrel during the cold season

In homemade preparations, the main thing is to preserve as much as possible vitamins and nutrients, which fresh greens are so rich in. That is why, when considering how to preserve sorrel for the winter, housewives prefer freezing. Indeed, in this case, the "spring king" does not lose its healing properties and original taste, giving them to the dishes in full.

For all its simplicity, the freezing process has some subtleties:

  1. First, the sorrel is placed in a basin filled with water and carefully sorted out, getting rid of accidental blades of grass, yellowed or spoiled specimens and other debris. During this time, the earth and sand remaining on the plant settle to the bottom and there is no need to keep the leaves under running water for a long time, destroying their delicate structure.
  2. Then the sorrel is rinsed under the tap to finally get rid of contamination. Allow the water to drain and lay the raw materials on paper towels to dry.

Girls, maybe also not in the subject, I want to tell you about small beets. I wash it, cook it until half cooked, clean it, put it in jars, usually liter, fill it with marinade like on cucumbers and set it to sterilize. Usually I do this in the oven, put the cans in a cold oven, bring it to 200 degrees, then turn it down and keep it for 20-30 minutes. Only in the oven you need to close the old lids. I take it out of the oven and add 1 tablespoon each. vinegar and roll up. I store it in the apartment in the closet.
