Pickle for the winter with tomato paste

Many hostesses prepare cold snacks for the winter, but in fact you can close not only salads in the banks, but also ready-to-cook products for making soups.

Cooking Features

Even an inexperienced hostess can make a useful preparation in the form of pickle, if she carefully studies the peculiarities of the technology and follows the recipe.

  • The pearl barley for pickle should be carefully selected, since it can contain pebbles and wash it. Next, it is soaked in cold water, leaving overnight. Then it will cook faster while cooking the soup itself.
  • Tomato paste for homemade preparations should be used high-quality. Some housewives do homework, this is the best option. If you use the store, give preference to the one in which there is nothing but tomato puree. If tomato paste with salt and sugar is half the trouble, you just need to adjust the amount of these ingredients in the recipe itself. But if there are artificial dyes, thickeners and other similar components in the composition, then such a product will not work for you.
  • The dressing for pickle will be tastier and more fragrant if you pre-fry the carrots and onions with other products during their stewing, about 10 minutes before the dish is ready.
