What garden plants are used in marinades

What garden plants are used in marinades

When my mother cooks soup, I remember the disputes between Westerners and Slavophiles at the end of the 19th century. Westerners did not like the capital for the persistent smell of sour cabbage soup in its courtyards, but over the capital of St. Petersburg in those days, the noble aroma of coffee and freshly baked French rolls reigned. Nowadays, both capitals have become equal: go to any entrance, and the tart smell of sourness, escaped milk and funnel pipes will hit your nose.

As for my mother, she also contributed to the reconciliation of the two capitals. Do you know how she cooks cabbage soup? She throws meat, potatoes, carrots, cabbage, onions, salt, tomato paste into a pot of cold water. All this puts to cook for the whole day on the slowest heat. The same disgusting provincial bourgeois "aroma of cheap tavern", which was so disgusting in Moscow to the refined St. Petersburg aesthetes, begins to quietly creep around the district.

I will notice right away that the way to a man's heart is not through the stomach, but through the sense of smell, i.e. Anyone will come running to the smell, or rather, to the aroma, and then it will be seen whether it is worth feeding him. Seriously, in the East, especially in the most ancient culinary of the world - Vedic, special attention has always been paid to spices, which give dishes a unique appetizing aroma. It was not for nothing that Christopher Columbus set off on such a dangerous journey to India for pepper, obviously, his wife made him a brew in the spirit of my mother.

Now no one rushes to the East for spices, and spicy mixtures come to Russia from Poland and Holland, however, they are tinted with synthetic dyes, the taste is given by the monodium glutomate, and the smell is from phenols. So we have to preserve aromas, as we preserve cucumbers and tomatoes, or rather, all this can be combined, as they say, "in one bottle."

Who said that apart from cloves and black peppercorns, nothing can be added to the marinade! It is not true, it is possible and necessary! Ask the supermarket how much balsamic vinegar costs. How good a French perfume! Of course, there is no dispute, wine vinegars, which, like expensive wine, are aged for many years in old barrels made of different woods, are worth their money, but often they ask us a lot of money for a beautiful bottle of ordinary vinegar, into which just a sprig of basil was thrown ...

But we ourselves have a mustache. You can, after all, pickling cucumbers, tomatoes, zucchini, squash, cauliflower and other gifts of our northern garden, add different spices, so much so that you can then pour a fragrant marinade on the salad and herring, and refine the soup, and meat for barbecue in withstand it.

Best of all, making a rich marinade is a creative process. There are a lot of components, choosing mixtures according to our taste, we create a kind of picture in which colors replace aromas. This is a very interesting, and most importantly, healthy occupation. I will try to list only a small part of the spices available to us, northerners, that can be put in a marinade.

Currant leaf. It is better if it is a wild black currant, but at the worst, any cultured one will do. One sheet is enough for a 0.5 liter can. The aroma of currants is coldish, autumnal, very subtle, suitable for all vegetables.

Cherry leaf. Twigs can also be used. The aroma is summer, delicate, tart. Cherry gives a bitter taste and preserves the strength of cucumbers and tomatoes, just two leaves per liter jar.

Amaranth. Amaranth leaves and inflorescences will add a slight sourness, will look beautiful in a jar. Plus, don't forget that they contain so much calcium!

Calendula, or marigold. Only flowers are used. Gives a very delicate velvety aroma, suppresses pathogenic microflora, stimulates the entire gastrointestinal tract.

Tagetes golden, or marigolds. Only flowers are used. They look very nice in the jar. Hindus throw them in all dishes, it is believed that they contribute to the preservation of masculine strength.

Nasturtium. Young shoots and green seeds are pickled. They taste like cucumbers and are great for decorating dishes in winter, especially when combined with olives.

Fenugreek. He's famous fenugreek. Only seeds are used. One teaspoon is enough for a 1 liter can. Gives an appetite-inducing bitterness. It is considered a cure for all diseases. It removes heavy metal salts from the body even better than amaranth.

Corn. Many northerners plant corn. In a bad summer, she does not have time to ripen, and her young, barely set ears can be pickled with cucumbers, it turns out very tasty. Basil. For the marinade, it is better to use basil with green leaves. Its aroma is similar to the aroma of bay leaves, but it is much richer.

Tarhun. Use twigs for the marinade. It is very good to keep the meat in such a marinade later.

Hyssop. It is good to add a sprig of hyssop to the marinade along with a sprig of tarragon. Helps with colds.

Coriander. It is best to add dry seeds to the marinade, but fresh inflorescences can also be added, however, these are two different flavors.

Kinza - this is an oriental exotic, the main thing is not to overdo it, 5-7 seeds per can is enough.

Parsley. Leaves, seeds, and root will go into the marinade, you can do everything at once, but a little bit. If you use greens, then curly is better, it looks more beautiful in a jar.

Celery. If not, then lovage will do. All goes too. Amazing plant! It was not for nothing that heroes were crowned with celery and parsley wreaths in ancient Rome. It preserves masculine strength and protects our kidneys.

Dill. Only faded panicles are used.

Nettle. Chop it finely along with the duck, grate the carrots, beets, zucchini zucchini on a Korean salad grater and marinate in a light marinade. I don't know anything better for refueling soups in winter, especially during Lent.

Grapes. This southern plant in our northern regions is no longer a curiosity. The vine has to be pruned annually, and the leaves should not be thrown away. Pickled grape leaves are used to make dolma. Even one leaf in a jar of cucumbers changes their taste for the better.

Garnet. The grains are used for beauty, and the crust pieces are used to flavor the marinade with balsamic vinegar. Moreover, you can use not only purchased fruits, the tiny fruits of a room pomegranate look great in a jar.

Barberry. Dry berries are well marinated with bell peppers and zucchini. It turns out very tasty if you then add this marinade when cooking pilaf.

Juniper. The ripe berries of this amazing plant give the marinade in a glass jar the flavor and aroma of a good old barrel. Sometimes even pieces of wood and sawdust are added. They say it saves you from the evil eye, enemies and accidental injury.

Oak. If you don't have an oak barrel in your cellar, put a piece of oak bark in a jar of cucumbers, you won't regret it.

Mustard. Hungarians are very fond of adding mustard seeds to their pickles, and it is believed to enhance the flavor.

Horseradish. Both leaves and root pieces are used. Add to taste. Horseradish helps to preserve the strength of vegetables in the marinade and gives them a unique crunch.

Ginger. The aroma of ginger root is hard to compare. The root is washed and cut into circles, three circles are enough for a liter jar, which can later be used to decorate dishes. Pickled ginger is an essential attribute of Japanese cuisine, and you will definitely find it on your plate if you are served sushi. It is believed to be good for colds.

Onion. A few onion rings will brighten up any marinade.

Garlic. It is best to add buds to the marinade, which we cut off in the beds to get a large head. You can use arrows, but the cloves change their aroma in the marinade, but then who likes what.

Capsicum red pepper. What a marinade without pepper! One dry pod must necessarily be in a jar with any vegetables, it gives a piquant taste and drives away lymph, which saves us from colds.

Paprika. We use dry powder to color the marinade in an attractive red color. In such a marinade, for example, chicken eggs look very beautiful.

Turmeric. Colors the marinade in a bright and appetizing yellow color. It is nice to see zucchini and cauliflower in such a marinade.

Karkade. The flowers of the Sudanese rose, which we brew as tea, can be used to give the marinade a deep pink color.

You can enumerate for a long time what other representatives of the flora are worthy to spend the winter in the same jar with our favorite cucumbers and tomatoes. I would be very grateful if some of the readers share their experience and tell what he brings from the forest to put in a jar with homemade preparations. Our ancestors knew many secrets, we would like to make them the property of all Petersburg housewives.

On my own behalf, I will add that instead of salt I often use Vegeta seasoning, and I prefer to mix table vinegar with apple cider and wine, or even replace it with citric acid. There are less cucumbers in my jars than there are various additives, but I do not pour out the fragrant marinade, but add it to the soup, so my entrance always smells of oriental spices, and not a cheap tavern.

Good question: What poisonous plants (possibly) grow in your garden

Poisoning by berries and fruits
Plants with poisonous berries pose the greatest danger, as the berries look very attractive and appetizing. Chances are, you avoid planting the poisonous crow's eye (Paris quadrifolia), coupena (Polygonatum) and wolfberry (Daphne), which can be found in parks. However, lilies of the valley (Convallaria), snowberry (Symphoricarpus), privet (Ligustrum), yew (Taxus baccata) and many others are often found in gardens.

Also among the poisonous plants are the Cossack juniper (Juniperus sabina) with its black fruits with a bluish bloom, euonymus, the fruits of which are loved by birds, but they are dangerous for humans. The same can be said for the blue-black berries of the maiden grape (Parthenocissus Planch). Tatar honeysuckle (Lonicera tatarica) and Caprifolium honeysuckle (Lonicera caprifolium) also have inedible fruits.

Belladonna is an extremely dangerous plant, a pair of berries of which is enough for paralysis of the respiratory tract and a disastrous outcome. Moreover, unlike other plants, its berries have a sweetish taste. Not only the berries, but the whole plant as a whole is poisonous, and even honey collected from belladonna flowers can be seriously poisoned.

Another poisonous plant, the castor oil plant (Ricinus), has recently become very popular in our gardens. For a powerful stem and textured colored leaves, it is often planted in prominent places near houses. But - the growth is poisonous in its entirety, especially the seeds from which the famous castor oil was made. Children are attracted to these oddly shaped seeds and can end up sadly when playing with them. It is deadly for a child to consume only one or two seeds, for an adult - a little more.

What else can you get poisoned in the garden
In addition to berry plants, we eat garden greens. So, you can confuse the foliage of some bulbous and use in cooking, for example, the bulbs and foliage of daffodils. Therefore, never plant daffodils in the middle of the garden - start a separate flower bed for them!

But not only poisonous, but also the most common plants and their edible fruits can be dangerous in shock doses. Rhubarb leaves contain oxalic acid, which is harmful in large quantities. For the same reason, you should not eat old sorrel leaves.

When ripe, black elderberry is suitable for making wine and jam, but unripe berries are poisonous, like other parts of the plant.

All green parts of tomato, potato, nightshade contain corned beef, which causes food poisoning. Never eat unripe tomatoes and sun-green potato tubers.

Even children are sometimes attracted by the aboveground fruits of potatoes, which, in principle, cannot be eaten.

Physalis decorative lantern is different from vegetable one - it is not edible! Choose the right variety if you plan to decorate the cake with berries.

To avoid trouble ...
First of all, you should know where and what plants (flowers) are in your country house. Be clear about their potential danger and tell children about it in detail.

Do not eat unfamiliar berries and fruits and do not plant poisonous plants in the garden and vegetable garden (as well as nearby), so as not to inadvertently confuse them with edible ones.

Strictly forbid children in the garden to take anything in their mouth without permission. After all, serious poisoning can be obtained even from an unripe currant, although it certainly does not belong to the category of poisonous.

When sending your child out to the garden for herbs for lunch, you must be sure that he knows where the onions and parsley grow. And harvesting fruits and berries is better and more fun together.

Do not leave young cooks unattended: children often cook dandelion soup and plantain pies on the playground. Eliminate any possibility of poisonous plants getting into this game.

Keep track of what kind of flowers they collect in bouquets, and from which they make wreaths.

Teach children to wash their hands thoroughly after any interaction with nature - and do not neglect this rule yourself.

And most importantly, memorize the rules of first aid for poisoning and keep in a conspicuous place the phone numbers of the rescue service and the nearest hospital.

Children in the garden: Arrangement of a nursery flower bed and selection of plants

Contact injuries of the skin and mucous membranes
Poisons can enter the body not only through the digestive system, but also directly through the skin and mucous membranes with the juice of poisonous plants. The most famous for its adverse effects is cow parsnip. This plant increasingly litters fields, wastelands and roadsides in the European part of the country, and can also easily penetrate gardens. There are several more dangerous plants from the umbrella family. Children sometimes use their hollow stems as spittoon tubes - this can be very dangerous.

Milkweed juice contains a poisonous substance - euphorbin. It can cause skin burns and mucosal inflammation.

Another dangerous plant is the ash tree. In the shade and in cloudy weather, it is quite harmless, but in the sun you can get a severe chemical burn of the skin, being near it.

  • Poisonous flowers
There is a great variety of flowers, very beautiful and harmless at first glance, but poisonous in one way or another (for example, the poisonous flowers in the photo). Among poisonous plants, a significant number of ornamental garden perennials belong to the buttercup family: Aconite, or Borets (Aconitum), Adonis (Adonis), Aquilegia, or Catchment (Aquilegia), Anemone, or Anemone, Basil (Thalictrum), Voronets, or Black cohosh (Actaea), Delphinium (Delphinium), Marigold (Caltha), Swimsuit (Trollius), Buttercup (Ranunculus), Helleborus (Helleborus), Pulsatilla.

Poisonous bulbous flowers (pictured) are also of great danger: colchicum (Colchicum), hyacinth (Hyacinthus) and the already mentioned daffodil (Narcissus). All parts of these plants are poisonous, especially the bulbs. In addition to food poisoning, which was mentioned above, these plants can cause dermatitis of varying severity - when fresh juice gets on unprotected skin areas.

When working in the garden with all these plants, you should be extremely careful. Fitting and dividing them should be done only with gloves. Try not to touch your face during work, and also avoid eating or drinking without washing your hands. In case of accidental contact of the juice of poisonous bulbous plants on the skin and mucous membranes, immediately rinse the affected area with plenty of water and consult a doctor as soon as possible.

Many of the plants mentioned are medicinal, since the same substances under different conditions and in different dosages can be both a poison and a medicine. For example, foxglove (Digitalis) contains substances called cardioglycosides, which are used in medicine to regulate heart rhythms, but overdose can lead to a heart attack. The highest concentration of these substances is found in the upper leaves of the foxglove.

Even the seemingly harmless fragrant violet (Viola odorata) has poisonous rhizomes and seeds, which are used as raw materials for medicines.

Advice: If you do not have a pharmacological education, do not self-medicate using medicinal plants from your site, as well as nearby forests.

Breathing in the scent ...
Foul-smelling plants such as Datura, all parts of which, not just flowers, are poisonous, are unlikely to grab your attention. But bouquets of daffodils and bird cherry are better not to put in the bedroom and in the nursery.

The strong scent of some plants can lead to headaches, heart palpitations, and in some cases, allergic reactions. This mainly applies to the elderly and children.

In such cases, strongly smelling trees and shrubs should not be planted under the window and near the entrance, as well as in the recreation area: wild rosemary (Ledum), mock orange (Philadelphus), bird cherry and others. By the way, the Rhododendron dauricum is often confused with wild rosemary, which is poisonous, like all rhododendrons, but first of all it is dangerous for pets.

Animal safety
Wild animals have perfectly developed instincts inherent in nature itself. They are well versed in plants and know what to eat and what not. Sometimes animals deliberately chew some obviously inedible grass, in order, for example, to get rid of worms or to clear the stomach.

But our pets, especially the thoroughbred “sofa” ones, have largely lost their instinct for self-preservation. When they get to the dacha, that is, to nature, they indiscriminately try to try all the plants by their teeth.

Each of the plants listed in the article - perhaps, except for trees, the flowers and fruits of which are difficult to reach - can be potentially dangerous for "fluffy summer residents".

Dogs are often poisoned by digging up and eating daffodil and tulip bulbs. And if a cat has profuse salivation and a defocused gaze, who will figure out which grass she chewed last.

With dogs, the situation can often be corrected by training and prohibitions, but cats can hardly be explained in words, and it is more difficult to keep track of them. By removing this or that plant from your site, you will not protect your pet by 100%, since in the neighboring area, where the cat can easily climb over the fence, no one will remove this plant. It remains for us to rely on the common sense of the animal and on emergency veterinary assistance.

In order to somehow reduce the risks, grow special green food for your pet throughout the year, so that by the spring the animals do not develop vitamin starvation and, when they get to the dacha, they do not pounce on everything green.

Many of these plants are likely to grow in your garden. Even after learning about their toxicity, you should not immediately get rid of these handsome men. You just need to remember the precautions and follow them carefully.

However, if you have any doubts, it is better to remove from the site those plants that, in your opinion, may be dangerous.

For owners of large suburban areas, the procedure for watering garden plants is not easy. Tedious fiddling with barrels and hoses, as well as endless movement around the territory with heavy buckets and garden watering cans are hardly a pleasure. In addition, there is always the possibility of damaging the plants by dragging the hose.

Therefore, for irrigation of large areas, systems of automatic irrigation (forced irrigation) are increasingly used. Fortunately, today's assortment allows you to choose a system not only for indoor plants, but also for the whole garden.

The "heart" of a garden automatic irrigation system is the water supply. Since the water supply system in suburban areas often leaves much to be desired, supplying water directly from the water supply system is a difficult task. Often, summer residents have to use other sources - tanks, wells, natural reservoirs. Therefore, automatic irrigation systems have sediments, with the help of which water from a storage tank or pond is delivered to the plants.ON THE PICTURE: Programmable remote control for modern pumps provides automatic irrigation

Horticultural autowatering systems are terrestrial and underground... Installation of a ground system does not cause any difficulties - you just need to run it along trees or beds, and connect it to a tank or water supply. The advantage of this method is its low cost and ease of use (if necessary, the system can be assembled or disassembled in a matter of minutes). Above ground irrigation systems can be used when the site is already fully decorated and you do not want to disturb the harmony.ON THE PICTURE: Overhead automatic irrigation systems are easy to use and cost effective

However, the hose network on a lovingly mowed lawn is hardly in line with modern ideas about what an ideal lawn should look like. Therefore, for those who make increased demands on the appearance of their site, it is better to give preference underground autowatering systems... They, as a rule, are laid even at the stage of landscape design, therefore, they are practically invisible, and their elements do not interfere with free movement around the site. Installed irrigation systems have practically no drawbacks. The only drawback is the complexity of conservation for the winter period (the need to dry pipes with compressed air, preparation for storage of pumping equipment), plus the high cost.ON THE PICTURE: The mounted autowatering system is laid down on the landscape design project and is practically invisible to the eye

Create a flower garden on the site - general recommendations

If you decide to create a flower garden for your garden, before going to the flower shop, you must decide how much time you are willing to devote to your garden, and which flowers appeal to you more? And besides, how much space are you willing to allocate for the design of a flower bed or flower garden, and where they will be.

Looks impressive, one big flower arrangement than several small ones

When preparing, you should pay attention to the recommendations of the manufacturers:

  • if the main time in the country is dedicated to the garden, choose only unpretentious crops and varieties
  • to organize a flower garden, take sunny, protected from strong winds
  • if the flowerbed is in the shade or partial shade, buy shade-tolerant and shade-loving crops
  • looks impressive, one big composition than several small
  • planting plan, it is necessary to take into account the height of the plants - tall crops are planted tightly in the center, but along the edges of the flower bed to the frame
  • it is important to remember the timing of flowering of different plants, and to create them accordingly
  • long flowering plants need more nutritious soil rich in fertilizers
  • planting flowers in the garden in the same flower bed, choose them so that they have similar growing and care requirements, and not to solve the problem of fertilizer distribution and watering rates for each plant.

Experts advise choosing flowers that are best suited to a particular region. Exotic plants are beautiful and original, but they usually do not take root well in temperate climates and require special care.
