Why only now you will not find on the shelves, like a variety of Goodies just look at first. But agree, sometimes you want as a child to buy a regular loaf of bread and take a bite out of her crisp on the way home. Or to fetch potatoes and bake it in the fire. Well, let her be covered with coal-black skin, but as tasty, mmm...
Let us remember the Soviet "delicacies" that we just loved as kids.
How often in the house and brought bread with otkusannymi edges. Of course, the shops bakery products sold without any defects. But few of the children reported them all, because to resist the temptation to bite into the crispy crust of the bread just didn't have the strength. Especially if it was still warm and was attracted by their delicious flavor.
If, however, the bread safely stayed home, usually children made him a cake, the recipe of which is plain: white bread, butter and sugar (sometimes jam). Nothing special, but tasty.
So many unusual appetizers of bread was invented by Soviet children. They are, for example, smeared the slices with vegetable oil and sprinkled with salt. And it was really tasty.
And even withered and stale bread could still benefit and become a mouthwatering delicacy. Soviet mistress used another method: beat eggs with salt, dipped in this mixture the slices and fried.
When I had to quickly build something delicious for tea, mother took out from the depths of the kitchen cabinets carefully stockpiled cookies. But there is simply so uninteresting, and the course was again a filling of butter and sugar.
Those who have ever had a real "end of the line", will never give them a "Lollipop". Recipe of candy, too, was outrageously simple: sugar and a little water. Made them using these cookie cutters not only in the form of cockerels, but also a variety of small animals and men. Some are left to cool sweet weight on regular spoons.
Rare jelly waiting for the moment when he will pour hot water and boil. In the Soviet era it was produced in the form of solid briquettes, which the children enjoy chewing. But from the remains it was possible to cook delicious and stringy drink. And no chemistry.
On the shelves of modern supermarkets you can find a great variety of cooked chuseok, and in Soviet times it was made in the home. I must say, this process was very dangerous and time-consuming: regular condensed milk put in a pot of boiling water, and if a little gape, clean up the kitchen from the exploded cans with a sticky mass was not easy.
Such cookies can now be bought in shops, but their taste is not the same. Every self-respecting housewife had in her kitchen Arsenal form, by that was original and delicious cakes, fillings which were all the same boiled condensed milk.
This product also has not disappeared from the shelves, but the taste, alas, is not the same.
How many boys and girls lost their dental fillings because of these candies, but still was not able to refuse delicacies.
About what is grill in the Soviet time did not know, but used coals from a fire to prepare another original and simple dishes. Potatoes with peel I just buried in the dying embers, and then dug. However, most often they were covered with coal "a fur coat", but his heart was incredibly delicious.
Despite the name, this treat did not add the potato and cooked it from the remnants of biscuits and cakes, sweetened condensed milk, sugar and butter. This here is a waste production.
In the Soviet kitchen was almost no challenging meals to cook that required a lot of ingredients. But that food does not get any worse. On the contrary, the minimum set of products it was possible to get delicious treats. For example, a bratwurst. A hot frying pan with butter, a few chunks of the "milk" or "Doctor" — and dinner is ready.
Cheap canned food with small fish might have replaced the meat and added the potatoes, pasta, buckwheat, soup... Mmm, this unforgettable taste and smell.
