The healing properties of mushrooms

Mushrooms are a popular tool in folk medicine. Scientific research of their healing qualities began in the 50s of the XX century. Compounds with high anticancer activity were found in fungi. So, it has been established that the Japanese Shiitake mushroom and Veselka, common in temperate climates, contain substances that stimulate the production of a regulator of abnormal cell division of perforin.

Such an effect is given by these mushrooms only in the form of tinctures and specialists should be involved in preparing the medicine. Veselka can also be used in the treatment of stomach ulcers.

The healing properties of tincture of hardwood tinder are used in the treatment of pulmonary diseases, in particular tuberculosis. You can also stop its development with chanterelle extract. Continue reading

Porridge: from distant times to the present day

Russian culture is inextricably linked with porridge. And how many proverbs and sayings exist in which this valuable product is mentioned! “Without porridge, lunch is not at lunch” – it is impossible to imagine a real meal without it. Porridge is also a symbol of the connection between people – “Until you eat porridge from one bowl, you will not recognize a person either.”

Not a single significant rite was complete without porridge; all the most important events connected with it. They cooked this dish at a wedding (the bride and groom themselves), at birth in the family of a child and at his christening, at a funeral and commemoration. After a successful outcome of the battles, the porridge should always have stood on the table. Moreover, there were so many recipes that each self-respecting housewife came up with her own.

In those days, in order to take an employee to the service, they put in front of him a large plate of porridge – if he eats, then he is fit. Eats well – works well. This is another reason for the great love for this product in Russia – it is very nutritious. Continue reading

From every little thing – a hungry pie

The etymology of the word “pie” is ambiguous. Some scientists believe that it came from the Old Slavonic “feast”. According to others, the word was formed from the old Russian “wheatgrass”, “wheatgrass”, which means “spelled” – one of the varieties of wheat. Some believe that it is a derivative of “prati” – “beat”, “pound”. There are a few more assumptions. Common to all these hypotheses is that all the alleged “parents” in one way or another relate either to the product from which this dish is prepared, or to the method of its preparation, or is dedicated to celebrations.

According to the “Big Explanatory Dictionary” D.N. Ushakova pie – “food – bread cookies, pre. from pastry with some filling. ” There is an opinion that in Russia this dish appeared on the tables of our ancestors only on holidays. So you can think of if you associate its name with the word “feast”. But if you take the word “pyro” or “prati” as the basis, then the pie turns into just a dish that is made from wheat and during cooking you need to grind a lot of things. This is a kind of pizza counterpart. Although not so simple. Continue reading
