Gând Călător: Murături asortate... ca acasă!! Homemade assorted pickles...:

"It seems that it is "the pickling*" time... Sorry; actually... It is the time when we must talk about pickles, especially about the assorted ones... So, if you like...
On wikipedia it is mentioned: that "murături*" are Romanian pickles. "Murăturile" are made out of beetroot, cucumbers, green tomatoes (gogonele), carrots, cabbage, bell peppers, melons, mushrooms, turnips, celery and cauliflower"....
nb. term. (substantiv ) murături = (noun) pickles; any kind of pickles preserved in vinegar, brine, or a similar solution.

About Pickles
Pickling* began 4000 years ago using cucumbers native to India.[citation needed] This was used as a way to preserve food for out-of-season use and for long journeys, especially by sea. Salt pork and salt beef were common staples for sailors before the days of steam engines. Although the process was invented to preserve foods, pickles are also made and eaten because people enjoy the resulting flavors. Pickling may also improve the nutritional value of food by introducing B vitamins produced by bacteria.

The term pickle is derived from the Dutch word pekel, meaning brine. In the U.S. and Canada, and sometimes Australia and New Zealand, the word pickle alone almost always refers to a pickled cucumber, except when it is used figuratively. It may also refer to other types of pickles such as "pickled onion", "pickled cauliflower", etc. In the UK, pickle, as in a "cheese and pickle sandwich", may also refer to Ploughman's pickle, a kind of chutney."

"Write it on your heart
that every day is the best day in the year.
He is rich who owns the day, and no one owns the day
who allows it to be invaded with fret and anxiety.
Finish every day and be done with it.
You have done what you could.
Some blunders and absurdities, no doubt crept in.
Forget them as soon as you can, tomorrow is a new day;
begin it well and serenely, with too high a spirit
to be cumbered with your old nonsense.
This new day is too dear,
with its hopes and invitations,
to waste a moment on the yesterdays.*"

    Si stelutele de morcovi...
    Mi-ai facut pofta!
    Zile frumoase de octombrie, draga Alexa!

    1. Multumesc frumos, Suzana! Toamna dupa toamna, inca ne mai preocupam de aranjamente "vegetale", cu putina creativitate sa alungam plictisul! Un octombrie insorit si cu zile frumoase, asemenea!

  2. Boa tarde, gostei de conhecer esta sua bela pagina, a publicação informativa é perfeita.
    Resto de boa semana,

  3. This looks very tasty! It's a long time since I made my own pickles.

    1. Thank you! Still in the traditional way, a romanian custom of autumn, it is to have homemade pickles stored for winter...

  4. Anotimpul in care se aranjeaza... camarile. :)
    Multumesc si pentru informatiile despre "istoria muraturilor". Nu m-as fi gandit sa caut originea. :)
    Iti doresc, cu drag, sa ai o toamna minunata, bogata in zile fericite! :)

    1. Mi-a trecut cu ceva timp in urma; am reluat informatiile, gasindu-le interesante; La noi, asa este: toamna este "anotimpul in care se aranjeaza ...camarile" *-* ce frumos ai descris, Diana!
      :) O toamna minunata, prospera, cu drag asemenea si un picut mai insorita daca s-ar putea! :)

  14. Dear Alexa - This is a delicious post about pickling and pickles. The vegetables on the tray and all the assorted pickles in the jars are art itself. Japanese pickles are called collectively “tsukemono”.


    1. Hello, Yoko! How lovely you said "art itself"... I've usually try to arrange them with fun and in a pretty manner to decorate the jars. So lovely, also, to know about the Japanese Pickles that are named "tsukemono". I'll keep it in mind. Very interesting and I'll love to learn more.. Many thanks for special infos and a very good week!
