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

7 healthy grapefruit benefits you should be aware of

The benefits of grapefruit for the human body
Grapefruits have long been known for their beneficial properties in losing weight, and therefore are most often associated with diets that help to lose weight. There are many ways to include them in a healthy diet, for example, half a grapefruit with boiled egg for breakfast or a grapefruit diet (a serving of this fruit with each meal speeds up metabolism and weight loss). And if earlier talk about the benefits of grapefruit was often perceived as another myth, today its many of its properties are scientifically proven.

The benefits of grapefruit for men and for women are several. In men, the rate of elimination of itraconazole was similar to that taken with grapefruit juice or water. However, in women, grapefruit juice caused a sharp decrease in the rate of excretion from their blood serum. Doctors warn that people should avoid grapefruit juice altogether when taking calcium channel blockers, which can reach levels of 100-150% higher than usual, which leads to a rapid decrease in blood pressure.

10 rules for a perfect salad

Many are sure that the salad is just the decoration of the main dish. In fact, it is itself a full-fledged dish, and not just a handful of leaves on a plate with steak or in a bowl with pasta. Leafy green vegetables are well known as functional alkaline products: they restore the acid-base balance in the body, which, due to our lifestyle, constantly strives to shift to the “acid” side, which causes inflammation. Salads also act as prebiotics in the intestines. Prebiotics are non-digestible, high-fiber foods that stimulate the growth of probiotic bacteria. This is very important because probiotics in the gut strengthen the immune system and optimize the absorption of nutrients from food. But the benefits of leafy vegetables are not limited to this (which I never tire of writing about).

In general, I urge you to eat as many salads as possible! Take them as a complete dish, and my application with recipes Live up! for iOS and Android will help you cook different salads every day, so it won’t be boring!
