4 fast dishes that you can store for a long time in a glass jar
- Corn in a jar – wash the corn kernels and blanch for 5 minutes in boiling water. Drain. Pour into clean and sterilized jars. Pour over salt water. Put 20 grams of salt in one liter of water. Seal tightly. Sterilize for one hour in the oven.
- Blueberries with sugar – clean blueberries from impurities. Wash and drain the blueberries. In one kilogram of blueberries put 500 grams of sugar. Arrange the blueberries in a jar, so that the first and last row is sugar. Close the jars. Be sure to leave it in the sun for a few days until the sugar has melted and the blueberries have settled. Then keep in a dark, cool and dry place.
- Carrots in salted water – clean smaller carrots of equal length. Grate and wash the carrots. Blanch for about 10 minutes in salted water. Cool in cold water. Drain and arrange in jars. Pour boiled salted water. Put 20 grams of salt in each liter of water. Add 2 sugar cubes. Seal tightly. On the first day, sterilize for one hour in the oven at 100 degrees Celsius. The next day one and a half hours at the same temperature. Then keep in a dark, cool and dry place.
- Fruits in jars – this instruction applies to all types of fruit. Take fruits of your choice (pears, apples, plums, peaches and any seasonal fruit). Wash 5 kilograms of selected fruit. Arrange the fruit in larger jars. Get a potassium meta-bisulfide i.e. “vinobran (grapefruit)” in tablets at pharmacies. Put one tablet of 10 grams of grapes in 5 liters of water. Pour the solution into the jar over the fruit. Wrap with cellophane. Leave in a room where the fruit will not move until used. The fruit prepared in this way is delicious and has a long shelf life.
