It is very important to use so-called preservatives when pickling vegetables. It is they who help to maintain the original consistency of the workpiece, and are also responsible for the safety throughout the winter. Recently, many housewives have been using aspirin to make pickled cabbage. Next, we'll look at some recipes for pickled cabbage with aspirin.
Role of aspirin in pickled cabbage
Acetylsalicylic acid is used for the following purposes:
- Aspirin is a preservative that can significantly extend the shelf life of the workpiece. With it, cabbage will not grow moldy or ferment. The workpiece, even in a warm room, will be well stored throughout the winter.
- Also, aspirin speeds up the pickling of cabbage. Using this additive, you do not have to worry about sterilizing cans and lids. And this saves a lot of time and effort.
- It helps to maintain the consistency of pickled cabbage. It will remain juicy and crispy for a long time, and will not change color and aroma.
Many people find it unusual to add a medicine to food. Therefore, some remain opponents of this method. However, many housewives are very pleased with the results and do not stop cooking cabbage for their relatives according to this recipe. It does have many benefits. It is worth considering how this tasty preparation for the winter is prepared.
Hot pickled cabbage with aspirin
To prepare crispy and juicy pickled cabbage, we need the following ingredients:
- three heads of medium-sized cabbage;
- six large carrots;
- two tablespoons of salt;
- two tablespoons of granulated sugar;
- litere of water;
- three teaspoons of 70% vinegar essence;
- 9 black peppercorns;
- three tablets of acetylsalicylic acid;
- 6 bay leaves.
For pickling, they choose mainly medium-late varieties of cabbage. Such vegetables absorb brine faster than late winter varieties. And at the same time, such cabbage is stored much longer than the early one. The aspirin tablet has oxidizing properties, which makes it act as a preservative.
Attention! From the specified amount of ingredients, you should get a three-liter jar of pickled cabbage.
The first step is to sterilize the cans. Before this, the containers must be thoroughly washed with warm water with the addition of soda. You can sterilize the jars in any way convenient for you. For example, many housewives use a special metal ring that fits over the kettle. Then jars are placed on it and sterilized in an upside-down position. The containers are kept over the steam until the bottom warms up well and the moisture from the walls of the can evaporates completely. This process usually takes about 3 to 5 minutes.
Next, they begin to prepare vegetables. The cabbage must be washed under running water and the spoiled top leaves must be removed. Carrots are peeled, washed and grated on a coarse grater. Cabbage can be cut with a knife or with a special shredder. Then place the chopped vegetables in a clean large bowl. Cabbage must be mixed with carrots, rubbing them together a little.
Next, proceed to the preparation of the brine. For this, prepared water is poured into a saucepan and salt and granulated sugar are added to it. Then the container is put on fire and brought to a boil. Immediately after this, the pan is removed from the stove and left for a while to allow the brine to cool slightly.
The still warm brine is poured into three-liter cans. Then three black peppercorns, two bay leaves and one acetylsalicylic acid tablet are thrown into each. Further, each container is half filled with a vegetable mixture. After that, the same amount of spices and aspirin is thrown into the jars again. Then put the remaining cabbage with carrots in the container and add pepper, lavrushka and aspirin again.
Advice! If there is too much brine and it rises to the very edges, then the excess liquid will need to be drained.
Then the cans are covered with plastic lids (they are just covered, but not corked) and left in a warm room for 12 hours. The fermentation process will begin soon. To release gas from the workpiece, it is necessary to pierce the contents with a wooden stick several times. When another 12 hours have passed, the cabbage will need to be pierced again with the same stick. At the final stage, one teaspoon of vinegar essence is added to each jar. After that, the jars are well sealed and taken to a cool room for further storage.
Cold method of pickling cabbage with aspirin for the winter
This recipe is not much different from the previous one. The main difference is that the brine for pouring cabbage is used not hot, but cold. So, to prepare the blank, we need to prepare:
- three small heads of cabbage;
- five or six carrots, depending on size;
- 4.5 liters of water;
- two tablespoons of granulated sugar;
- one tablespoon of table salt;
- ten black peppercorns;
- 2.5 tablespoons of vinegar 9% table;
- six bay leaves;
Cooking cabbage begins with the brine, as it must cool completely. Pour all the water into the pan, add sugar, salt and all the spices. The contents are brought to a boil, vinegar is poured in and removed from heat. The brine is set aside, and in the meantime they begin to prepare the vegetable mass.
The cabbage is washed and chopped, the carrots are peeled and grated on a coarse grater. Then the vegetables are mixed together without grinding. The vegetable mass is laid out in jars. The containers must first be washed and sterilized over steam. Next, the vegetables should be poured with chilled brine. At the end, you need to put two acetylsalicylic acid tablets in each jar.
Important! The workpiece is rolled up with tin lids.
Another option for cooking cabbage with aspirin
For the third recipe, we need the following components:
- head of white cabbage;
- one carrot;
- three tablespoons of granulated sugar and salt;
- three or four bay leaves;
- ten black peppercorns;
- ten inflorescences of a whole carnation;
- three aspirin tablets.
We clean and grind vegetables in the way we are used to. Then they are rubbed to make the juice stand out. The mass is laid out in half-liter jars. A third of a tablespoon of sugar and the same amount of salt, peppercorns and lavrushka are poured onto the bottom of each container.
Important! Add half a tablet of aspirin to a half-liter jar. Since we lay out the workpiece in layers, a sixth part of the whole tablet should be crumbled to the bottom of the can.
After the aspirin, the vegetable mass is spread into the container, it should fill the jar to half. Then add spices and aspirin again. The layers are repeated one more time. On top, you need to put two clove buds and pour boiling water over the entire contents. Banks are rolled up with sterile metal lids. The container with the workpiece is cooled upside down. It is advisable to cover the containers with a warm blanket.
Pickled vegetables do not always store well, even under suitable conditions. The real salvation in this case is acetylsalicylic acid. Many housewives are already pickling cabbage in this way. The tablets not only help to preserve the workpiece until spring, but also allow you to preserve the original taste and aroma. Be sure to try pickling cabbage according to the proposed recipes.
