Methods for making homemade liquor

Recipes for the preparation of liqueurs were known in ancient Russia. They do not include yeast, but very strong vodka is used.

Homemade liquor can be prepared from almost any variety of berries, the main condition is that they are ripe. Berries should be clean, without extraneous leaves or roots. Well, whether crushed berry or whole berries are used, the taste of the liquor will not change in any case. For apple filling, only acidic varieties can be used. Apples need to be cut into small slices so that they fit in the neck of the vessel you have chosen. The glass bottle should be filled in 2/3 with berries and pour vodka to the top. Use a cloth as a cork and leave it in a sunny place. Every three to four days it must be thoroughly shaken.

The time when the filling is completely ready depends on how ripe the berries were and how much you used. On average, this is two to three months. Ready-made liquor should be filtered through a cotton cloth or paper. So that it is not very strong, the filling can be diluted with water. Continue reading

Lent: nutritional rules

Even a person who is far from the belief that in modern society has long ceased to be a rarity, this concept has somehow, but been familiar, somehow, yes, but people who believe in God often do not really fully understand that It represents the Great Lent. After all, a believing person does not mean fasting, fasting: you can go to church, put candles, keep the commandments, but at the same time do not go deep into faith and do not consider obligatory the observance of such standard norms of the Christian religion as fasts. With the phrase “Great Lent”, many represent only a strict restriction in the choice of food, even more stringent than in regular posts, devoid of the prefix “Great”. Some also know that Lent is the preparation of the Christian for Easter, and, accordingly, for the resurrection of Jesus Christ. So what is Lent at its core? What is it for and what is it “invented” for? And why do some foods go out of use during fasting? We’ll try to figure it out.

To begin with, in order: Lent in Church Slavonic is Four-Decade, which means a quantitative period of fasting – 40 days. Lent is not only observed by the Christian church, it is the central post of all historical churches, as well as several Protestant denominations. Continue reading

10 products to help focus

In the modern world, it can be very difficult to focus on something. Constant smartphone signals and notifications on social networks can make distracted even the most motivated of us. Stress and aging contribute to this.

The diet can significantly affect our ability to concentrate, because some foods provide the brain with nutrients that help us concentrate, while at the same time strengthening our health. Here is a list of some of them:

Walnuts

A 2015 study by scientists at the University of California’s David Geffen School of Medicine found a positive association between walnut consumption and increased cognitive function in adults, including concentration. According to data published in the Journal of Nutrition, Health and Aging, only a handful of walnuts per day (but not more, since they are high in calories) will benefit a person at any age. After all, they lead among other nuts in the number of antioxidants that help improve brain function. They also contain alpha-linolenic acid, an omega-3 fatty acid that is essential for brain health.
