Step by step instruction of cooking Lecho with tomato paste
The taste of kefir depends on the taste of tomato paste. The main rule of the choice of tomato paste is to read the part! There should be only tomato paste and salt. Everything, nothing more. Pay attention to the percentage of dry substances, he shall not be less than 25%. It is a guarantee that dishes will be delicious!
To the tomato paste add the water and stir until smooth. Add salt, sugar, chopped garlic, allspice and Bay leaf.
Pepper can take any ripeness. Though red, though green, their mixture. The only thing I do not advise to prepare Lecho of pepper varieties "Swallow", it has a peculiar taste and rough skin.
Slicing pepper in the flour - to your taste, but I know from experience that pepper along the sliced fruit keeps the shape. So slice the pepper along the fruit into strips about 1 cm by removing the seeds and stem. If the straw is long, you can cut it into 2 parts
Place the peppers in a pan with tomato sauce
Bring to a boil, reduce heat to medium, and cook 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.
In advance of you thoroughly wash your jars and lids. Banks sterilize any usual way, the caps will boil. At the time of seaming jars and lids must be hot!!!
Boiling Lecho pour into hot sterile jars, screw hot boiled lids. Banks wrap to cool. You can not turn over. Canned thus, I have kept the furniture in the apartment until next season.
The main thing is to check that all covers "sucked", that is, in the center of the lid appeared as if the concavity. If such concavity is not - the Bank is not conserved and may explode.
