Mentioned that many foreigners, who visited Ukraine first time in 2008 during the First International Conference on "The organic sector development in Central and Eastern Europe and Central Asian countries" expressed surprise and genuine enthusiasm for the unusual taste of drinks, which (except of course, well known in the world our strong "trunkiv") we treated them.

These were stewed fruits - what we call the third most common dish in Ukraine - compote's type of dried or fresh fruist. "Uzvar" much thicker, more concentrated than ordinary compotes. To make it use apples, pears, plums, cherries (both dried and fresh), raisins, prunes, blueberries, cranberries, cranberries, strawberries, raspberries and other berries.

Often compote prepare only from one type of fruits or berries with the addition of raisins.These include apple compote, pear, plum, cherry, blueberry. Classic set of fruit and berry compote for precast - dried apples, pears, cherries, prunes and raisins, or fresh apples, pears, plums, cherries and raisins.

For a delicious and flavorful compote is important to prepare pre fruits and berries.Dried fruits should be thoroughly washed and take in the cold and warm water, fresh - only cold. Equally important to follow the correct ratio of water, fruit and sugar. At 1.25 l (6 glasses) of water are at least 500 grams of fresh fruit or 300-400 g of dry, from 0.75 to 1 cup sugar and 1 tablespoon of honey. In general, old honey compote completely replace sugar.

From spices to add compote cloves, cinnamon and zest. At the specified amount of water taken butonchyky 3-4 cloves, 0.5 teaspoon cinnamon, 1 teaspoon peel and 0.5 tsp lemon half fresh lemon (juice and peel) which lay at the very end of cooking before removing from fire. And vydavlyuyut juice and peel with the remaining zest removed and crushed. Besides compote of fresh berries (strawberries, raspberries and cherries) is preparing holodtsi juice from the same grapes and grape or fruit wine, fruit andgrandmother, in which one any fruit puree is combined with eggs, flour, sugar and spices ( vypikayetsya all this weight in the oven).

Often we used to cook stewed fruit compotes, dried fruits. Unfortunately, they do not need to boil. Just fill them with boiling water and cover tightly. This compote is useful without adding sugar. You can put a little honey. And do not forget that the greatest benefits from this drink - on the third day after preparation.

How efficiently these our traditions! Inside the winter and even after fasting vitamin reserves accumulated by the body, begin bidnity. Of course, it inevitably appears on the vitality of the person: the appearance, health and mood. And that so-called "summer dried - fruits - helps us overcome the cold beriberi.

Even in ancient times knew that the fruits (apples, pears, dried apricots, raisins, prunes) - is not just a dried delicacy. It is a true concentrate of useful substances! Dried fruits are rich in vitamins A, B, C, calcium, iron, phosphorus, potassium and other nutrients.

For example, dried apricots (dried apricots) not only meets the needs of the organism in phosphorus, potassium, iron, carotene and vitamin B5, but also promotes fat burning.Prunes help overcome stress and improve carbohydrate metabolism, and infusion of prunes solve problems with the work of the stomach.

Dried pear stimulates digestion and helps in the intestines: it has a lot of insoluble fiber, which work to normalize the digestive system. In addition, pear releasing the body of heavy metals and toxins. Favorite all raisins strengthen the nervous system, lungs and heart.

"Uzvar" firmly entered our everyday life. But do not forget that this miracle drink was for our ancestors is not one of the attributes of important events, major holidays, including Christmas and Easter! Given the increasing pace of life and increasing consumer concern about the quality of ingredients used to prepare drinks, the brand "Pan Eko" finally offered a wide range of certified organic cooking sets for a series of traditional compote, including "Classic", "Carpathian", "Ukrainian", "Easter" and many others.
