Limonnik berries
You can put a few berries into a teapot of

pink drink, tasting and smelling a bit spicy.
59
Kvas (Russian traditional drink) with Limonnik.
1 kg of rye crackers, 500 g sugar, 50g currants, 25g yeast, 1 table spoon of
dried mint, 10-12 black currant leaves, a pinch of cinnamon, 50g limonnik
berries.
Instruction
Dry the crackers in the oven, then put into a large enamel pan, pour boiling
water over them and leave to stand for 10-12 hours. Place the mint and
black currant leaves in two separate cups of boiling water to make a kind of
tea. Strain the crackers mixture through two layers of muslin, and add the
black currant leaf tea, sugar and yeast. Mix it all well and leave to ferment at
room temperature for 5-6 hours. When the kvas begins to foam, skim the
foam off, and strain again, and then pour into bottles, and add the mint tea.
Add several limonnik berries to each bottle and cork well. If you drink half a
glass of this kvas every morning, it will have a good tonic effect.
60
Varenye (a kind of a jam) from zhimolost berries.
1kg of zhimolost berries (freshly picked and not too ripe), 1kg
sugar, 1 glass of water, 2g citric acid crystals
Instruction
Make hot syrup from boiling water and sugar, and pour
over the berries, and leave for 4 hours. When the berries
absorb all the syrup, boil for 5 minutes, and then leave
again for 5-8 hours. Then add citric acid to avoid
crystallizing, and boil to the right consistency (the
berries should not float to the top).
61
Salted ferns.
Use 4kg of salt to 10g of fern shoots. Salt the
bottom of a barrel, then put in a layer of ferns,
then a layer of salt, in turn.
Put a layer of salt at the top and put a weight on top. In 3 weeks,
prepare a salt solution with 1 -1.5kg of salt to 10 liters of water.
Pour out the old liquid, and pour in
new salt solution. Leave for another 3 weeks.
Before using the fern in salads, soak in water, and then
bring the water to the boil.
62
Banyas
63
One of the greatest Russian traditions is the banya (equivalent to
sauna). You can enjoy different type of banya: public or private one.
Public banyas are equipped with separate rooms and pools for each
sex. Private banyas can be rented for a small group of friends.
To enjoy it you have to follow some simple rules: sit naked in the
sauna until you sweat, go out and jump into the cold water or take a
cold shower. This is only the beginning!!! After two or three of these
cycles, take the wet branches you'll find in the sauna and start hitting
yourself in order to bring blood to the surface of your skin.
You can also put a mix of honey and salt all on your body in order to
stimulate your circulation and leave your skin sweet.
Don' forget to drink water or tea and avoid alcohol!!
