Zucchini pumpkin for the winter

From the multitude of pumpkin recipes, this is one of the most cost-effective, as it is kept all winter and can be eaten especially on fasting days, for breakfast or dinner.

Zucchini are very cheap, easily accessible and very versatile. The recipe can be re-adapted according to preference and possibilities. So, in addition to the given ingredients, you can also add eggplant, mushrooms or other vegetables that you like.

Pumpkin zacusca for winter - recipe

• 4 kg of pumpkin
• 1.5 kg of bell peppers, donuts or kapia
• 1.5 kg of tomatoes
• 1.5 kg of onions
• 1-2 carrots
• 200 ml of oil
• 1 tablespoon of salt
• 2 bay leaves
• 2-3 cloves of garlic
• optional: 1 teaspoon sugar, 2 ginger and 2 coriander seeds, ground

If the pumpkins are from the garden, or are from an organic source, there is no need to peel them. Cut off their heads and wash them well.

Prepare the other vegetables as well. Bake the peppers or donuts and peel them while they are warm. Clean the inside, removing the seedbed. Chop the mincer, like eggplant salad.

Peel a squash, grate it and squeeze the juice. Put the zucchini on the large grater and mix with the salt. Let them sit with salt in a bowl to leave as much water as possible.

Wash the tomatoes and put them on the grater to remove the peel.

Peel an onion and finely chop it. Heat the oil in a large, thick-walled saucepan and add the onion. Stir constantly for 2-3 minutes, until slightly hardened. Pour 1 cup of water and simmer over medium heat for about 10 minutes.

Then add the grated carrot and bring to a boil. Add a little warm water when you notice that the liquid drops.

When the onion has softened, add the well-drained grated zucchini. Now add the baked peppers, finely chopped.

Put the lid on and let everything boil for 10 minutes. Then add the tomatoes, salt, pepper, bay leaf and other spices.

Bring to the boil until the liquid drops, stirring often. When you notice that the oil has risen to the top, the zacusca is ready. Add sugar if you want the zacusca to be sweeter and not too sour.

Add the crushed garlic and mix well. Turn off the heat and let the zacusca sit with the lid on for another quarter of an hour.

Transfer the zacusca to the jars, screw the lids well and sterilize them for 30 minutes. Allow the jars to cool in the water in which they were boiled, or wrapped in thick blankets, somewhere in a corner of the room.

HOW IS THE SPACE SAVED FOR PLANTING THE STEM? GRAFT!

In the open field, my grape bushes are planted in boxes with sides 25-30 cm high and 60-70 cm wide, made of slate or planks. On such beds, it is convenient to cover the plants for the winter (after the autumn pruning) with plate shields, without using any filler to scare the mice. A coat of snow fits well on these shields and we always have enough snow. All shrubs grow in rows with an interval of one and a half to two meters (I leave two meters between rows).

All in all, I have more than 30 growing grape bushes and there is no room for new ones.

But still I want to have even more varieties with large and early fruits. Therefore, in the future I intend to graft beginners on already growing shrubs. This operation alone is more complicated than grafting stone and stone fruit crops. Three years ago, I planted Nero on the Cosmonaut variety, which has a weak immune defense against disease, although the berries are quite tasty.

I planted it in the spring in the cut head of a bush under the soil surface, using the method of division and using two cuttings. Only one took root. It is now a fairly large and strong bush.

By the way, I grafted the Aleshenkin variety with a simple black-and-white copulation, ie last year's cuttings in last year's filming. Then three out of five cuttings took root. And one of my well-known winemaker tested kidney grafting in the summer, using the replacement method: when a bud is removed with a flat cut in the film of the current season, and a bud of a different variety is inserted and fixed in its place with a strap. The survival rate was high, but these buds, due to the short hot season in our area, did not ripen well and, consequently, only a few of them overwintered.

The price of natural gas could increase by 20% from July 1

Romanian gas consumers can currently sign contracts with much lower prices than those announced on July 1 by certain suppliers, said the vice president of the National Energy Regulatory Authority, Zoltan Nagy.

He states that the population can find advantageous offers on the price comparator on the ANRE website.

The statement comes in the context in which in our country an increase in gas prices is expected from July 1, and one of the major suppliers announces increases of even 25%.

Zoltan Nagy: Now, gas prices in both Europe and Romania are very, very high, and this increase started in April. If at the beginning of April, maybe in March, contracts could be concluded for the winter of 2021-2022 at prices around 90 lei, currently under 130 it is impossible the price is somewhere between 130 and 140 lei, and price offers that are given it should also include purchases for the coming winter. So this increase in gas prices should come as no surprise to anyone.

The "Intelligent Energy" Association estimates that from July 1, gas will increase by 20%, and electricity by 10%, Radio Romania Actualitati reports.


Marinated zucchini in a jar & # 8211 Can be stored for a long time

Do you have too many pumpkins and don't know what to do with them? I offer you two options: canned zucchini for winter or a special recipe with zucchini.

Zucchini is a highly cultivated plant, native to America, which comes in many varieties. For over 10,000 years of widespread growth, the genus Curcubita has changed into several species. The pumpkins we eat are those of the species Curcubita Pepo or Cucubita Moschata, the rest of the species being populated with decorative or ornamental varieties.

It is planted in spring and harvested from summer to autumn. The harvest can be rich if you plant about 5 seeds of 5 types of edible pumpkins. Because they don't last long fresh and because we want them and when everything is white outside, in autumn we prepare canned pumpkins for winter. Before preserving them, try the freshly prepared pumpkin juice! Really delicious!
