The Russians are a people who love meat. A variety of meat dishes are a must in the dining room. Everyone knows that it is very cold in Russia and meat gives the body the energy it needs to warm up. The Russians eat meat in large quantities, not only, they also eat raw pork! “How is this still possible?” – you ask. In Russia, it is really common to eat raw fatty pork (For the Chinese, anything that has not been heat treated is considered raw. – About InoSMI.). An appetizing pork appetizer is a great addition to vodka. Foreigners, having learned this, are shocked. After all, it is no longer the time when meat was eaten raw. Such a “barbaric way” of eating is against the rules of human civilization, but the Russians think differently. A snack with raw fatty pork, which they love to eat, is called lard. This is a dish of homemade Russian cuisine. Do not think, the meat is not cut by the pig and eaten immediately, first marinated with salt, pepper and other herbs and placed in the refrigerator or other cool place. Before eating the lard is cut into thin slices Process of salting the lard The lard is most often salted at home, especially in rural areas. This process is usually done by hostesses. In Russia they love to gather at the table, where the hostess will definitely put her own lard. The method of salting is quite simple. It is necessary to prepare a good piece of fatty pork with a thickness of more than three centimeters. The meat must be fresh: in this case, the fat is light pink or white. It is better to choose meat in the neck and shoulders of the pig. The pork should be cut into large pieces and soaked in concentrated salt water for two days, then drain the water and cover the meat with a thick layer of salt so that it is completely covered. After that, you have to prepare a wooden box, on the bottom of which you have to lay a layer of clean kraft paper and then sprinkle the paper with salt about one centimeter thick and lay the pieces of meat. After one layer is spread, the meat is sprinkled with salt to a thickness of about one centimeter, bay leaves, pepper, dill and other spices are placed and then the second layer of meat is spread. This continues until the whole box is full. After stuffing, the meat is covered with craft paper or cloth, then the box is closed with a lid, on which stones or other heavy objects are placed. The box should be placed in a cool place for a while, so that the meat is well salted and saturated with spices. After that, the fat is ready, you can eat it. In this form, the product can be stored for a long time and will not spoil, the main thing is to maintain a cool air temperature. Some people worry that when you eat pork in this form, you can become infected with bacteria and parasites. In fact, lard is mostly fat, not meat. Most parasites live in the pig’s liver, muscles, brain and other organs, but not in fat. In addition, after soaking in salt water and pickles in large quantities of salt, pepper, dill and other spices, any bacteria and parasites will disappear, so in principle, you do not need to worry about the safety of lard Salo and vodkaAccording to foreigners, the lard, loved so much by the Russians, even after salting remains raw fatty meat and does not cause appetite. Many are confused how it is still possible to eat! But in Russia, a piece of brown bread with a few slices of bacon and a pickled cucumber is a great snack for vodka. The Russians often make black bread sandwiches with lard, pickled cucumber and herbs. Crispy cucumber gives sourness, the bread is soft and thick, so when you bite a sandwich, the fat content in the fat is not felt. In fact, it is quite tasty. Salo is the best snack for vodka. Before drinking a glass, you should eat a few pieces. Fat slows down the absorption of alcohol and reduces its harmful effects on the stomach. In addition, as lard is saturated with salt and various spices and is consumed with garlic and herbs, there is no sense of fat in the mouth. It is a delicious snack with high nutritional value. Salo is very popular in Russia. In addition to the excellent taste and high nutritional value, lard is well suited to the geographical conditions of this country. Prolonged colds require the consumption of high calorie foods and fat comes to the rescue here. When going on a long trip or fishing, the Russians always take it with them, as well as pickles, black bread and vodka to warm up and satisfy their hunger. It has a high calorie content, but also contains many useful substances. Consumption of fat in moderation helps to strengthen the myocardium and increase the immune system. In addition, lard is usually eaten with greens and brown bread, this allows you to adhere to the principle of a balanced diet. The history of the appearance of lard Salo is one of the favorite products of the Russians, but ancient Italy is the birthplace of its origin. Two thousand years ago, lard was the staple food of slaves in Roman quarries. At that time only aristocrats ate meat, believing that pork fat was garbage, so they fed the slaves with this “garbage”, the ancient Romans rubbed pork fat with salt and stored it in marble containers. As the marble can maintain a low temperature, the food was stored for a long time, which allowed it to feed a large number of slaves for a long time. Such foods began to be called lardo. Over time, not only slaves but also ordinary people began to eat lardo. Later this dish even appeared on the tables of the aristocracy. However, lard, which was eaten by the aristocrats, was ground not only with salt but also with various expensive spices, such as rosemary and anise. Soon, thanks to its simplicity and nutritional value, lardo began to enter the diet of the Roman legion. Later, lard appeared in cold Ancient Russia and became a dish of Slavic cuisine. In the beginning, ordinary people ate it, because meat and bones were expensive, only boyars could afford it. Salo helped to survive the long cold winter and gradually became more and more popular. People added various spices during salting and over time, lard became a necessary product of the Slavs, however, there is another legend about the origin of lard. It is believed that his homeland is Ukraine. In the 16th century, the Tatars, who professed Islam, frequently attacked the Slavs and stole all the cattle. But the Slavs found a way out – they started breeding pigs in large numbers, which the Tatars did not remove. In addition, the Slavs took pork fat and rubbed various objects with it and also hung lard on the cellar door to protect property from looting by Muslims. Of course, the smell of pork scared the invaders. Since many pigs were bred to store pork for a long time, the Slavs began to salt it. Then came the fat. Lean meat was not stored for long, but pork fat was not spoiled even when it was hot. At that time, lard was a cheap and nutritious food for farmers, who thanks to it were healthy and strong. Salo is considered a high-calorie product that reflects strength and courage. In Ukrainian villages, they still say: “Men who do not eat fat will not be able to do physical work.” Fat was also included in the diet of the ancient Cossacks. Despite the difficult conditions, they were brave and skilful in battle, overcoming all obstacles on the way and inspiring fear in the enemies. It is said that the power of the Cossacks was associated in part with the use of lard. Until now, lard was popular in both Ukraine and Russia, and not only among ordinary people. In addition, in Russia, lard has also become an excellent snack for vodka. Today, in many parts of the world, pork fat is considered unhealthy, but in Russia it is one of the most popular products. If you ever go there, be sure to try the salon. Maybe you will like it.
