Dwarf, having the official status of a medicinal plant,
pleasing with abundance of harvest, loved and revered by traditional healers and culinary specialists. Admirers of extraordinary black ash rowan blanks for the winter will delight you with a unique taste.
Harvesting berries of chokeberryIn order to get tasty pieces and meet expectations, you need to know when to pick berries. The ideal time for removal is called the beginning of autumn - September-October. Then the crop reaches its full maturity, it can be saved for the long winter months and used as a preventive measure for various diseases.
If you want to get a berry with a maximum concentration of useful substances, collect it after the first frost. It is then that she gets her best taste. And now let's see what can be made of black wolf.
Recipes for chokeberry rowanberry jam
The first thought that arises when you wish to procure black chokeberry is jam. There are many options for making jam from this berry, but the preparatory stages of their preparation are about the same.
When it comes time to make harvesting of chokeberry for the winter, it is important to heat the berries correctly. It turns out that the fruits are dry, so before you cook them, it is recommended to soften them a bit. This is done by successively lowering them for 3–5 minutes, then in boiling water, then in cold water. After the procedure, the fruit is poured into a colander, allowed to drain and only then proceed to the preparation of jam or other preparations.
Chokeberry JamFor the preparation of the mixture is not profitable, because solid rowan berries are cooked for a long time. First, half a pound of water is poured into a pound of sugar and the syrup is prepared. They poured berries, prepared according to the above principle, and set on fire. When the mass boils, it is kept on the fire for about five minutes, stirring constantly, and then removed and left for about 8 hours or a little more. This time is necessary so that the berries are soaked with syrup. After that, the rest of the sugar is added to the mixture, and again the container is set on fire. Stir, boil until the syrup thickens.
Lay out the jam in jars, roll covers, usually metal. It can be closed and polyethylene. Some housewives even close the banks with foil and fasten them with a cord moistened with water. When it dries, it is tightened, creating tightness.
Black chokeberry jam can be made without sugar. It is especially useful in this form for people suffering from diabetes. For its preparation, a bulk container is taken, a rag is placed on its bottom, and jars filled with prepared berries are placed on top. The water is poured into the container so that it reaches the hangers of the cans, and on a small fire it is brought to a boil. As soon as they settle in the cans of berries, they should be gradually filled. The cooking process takes about 40 minutes. When the jam in them is ready, the banks alternately take out and roll.
Dwarf is harvested in different ways, the recipes for the winter involve the preparation of jam or, as we used to call it, jam. For this you need about a pound of sugar and a kilogram of berries. Fruits are prepared for cooking, then poured into a container and covered with sugar. They should be left until they put the juice. This usually takes 3 to 5 hours. After this, the container is placed on the stove, the contents are brought to a boil, they reduce the heat and cook for an hour, stirring constantly.
When the mixture has cooled, wipe it through a sieve or chop the berries with a blender. The future jam is set on fire again and cooked until it thickens. Hot laid out on sterile jars and roll. Used as a dessert or base to sauces.
Chokeberry CompoteThe easiest recipe for making compote is to pour the berries with hot syrup once. Prepared for canning berries scatter on banks for a third of their volume. Then prepare a syrup of water and sugar in a ratio of 2: 1: sugar is diluted in water, brought to a boil and cook for about 5 minutes. Hot syrup is poured over the cans with berries, immediately rolled up with metal lids. Banks turn, wrap and allow to cool. After that, the workpiece can be lowered into the cellar.
Compote can be prepared in another way. Pour boiling water over the berries poured into the jars, and then pour the entire contents into the container along with the berries. The mixture is boiled until the berries burst, then add sugar and boil for 10 minutes. Only then compote is poured into the banks and rolled up. However, it is believed that with this method of preparation a lot of useful substances are lost.
Syrup from mountain ash black-fruitedAronia syrup is considered healthy and tasty. To do this, take prepared in advance, but already dried berries of chokeberry and fall asleep in three-liter jars to the shoulders. Add three tablespoons of citric acid (30 g) and pour boiling water over the neck. Covering the jars on top of gauze or saucer, leave for a couple of days.
After this period, the water is drained through a strainer into the pan, sugar is added at the rate of one and a half kilograms per three liters of water and put on the fire. The syrup must be constantly stirred and heated until the sugar has melted, it is not necessary to bring to the boil. When sugar dissolves, remove from heat and allow to cool. The finished syrup is poured into sterile containers, covered with lids and sent to a dark, dry place. It does not have to be cold. Even in a warm room, the syrup can be stored for several years.
Chokeberry juice will also be useful. To prepare it, you will need a liter of fresh chokeberry juice, a liter of apple juice and about 50 grams of sugar. Juices of berries and apples are mixed, heated, add sugar, put on a slow fire and bring to a boil. Then poured over the banks and roll covers. Banks must first be sterilized for less than 15 minutes.
How to dry berries
Chokeberry - peculiar, requires a special approach to harvesting. Fruits collected after full ripening, stuck by the first frosts, fully reveal their valuable qualities. It is necessary to dry them so as not to lose the healing properties.
Collected mountain ash is sorted, separated from the stalks, sorted, washed, dried. Drying the berries is recommended in three ways: dried in the open air, using an electric dryer, oven. Observing temperature, you can choose any option.
Chernoplodku vyalyat as clusters, and in bulk. Peeled of garbage, rot, birds pecked berries, umbrellas hang on a fishing line in a well-ventilated area, if dry sunny days have stood out, it is allowed to take out clusters on the street.
Periodically inspected for mechanical damage, mold. It is not recommended to allow wetting of already dried fruits. For drying in bulk, parchment (or any other food) paper is laid on the pallet. Prepared chokeberry finely laid out. Dried - as on clusters, periodically agitating, checking the quality of the berries.
Ready black chokeberry a bit like wrinkled dark raisins with a glossy shine.
Important! Dried fruits are considered dried if, when the fruit is squeezed between the fingers, juice is not released.
On the trays attached to the dryer lay out prepared rowan. To sustain at a certain temperature specified by the instruction, usually, the initial drying occurs at +55 - 60 degrees, dried dried berries at +40, the approximate ready time is 4-5 hours.
In the home oven, the actions remain the same, only on modern ovens they include convection, the ordinary oven - they leave the door ajar, often checking, stirring. It is necessary to make sure that the color of the fruit does not brighten - the black chokeberry loses its color, loses its healing properties.
Tip! If the black flea is dry and crumbles, do not grind it in a coffee grinder, add to baking.
How to store dried chokeberry
Dwarf blackberry, like any of the dried fruit, has the ability to absorb moisture. For the safety of the product is not suitable dishes that allow air: paper bags and boxes, plastic containers.
- Glass jars with ground-in lids - the best option, dried fruits are stored for a year.
- Tightly closed cans protect aroniya from moisture for about six months.
- In food plastic (containers or zip-bags), semi-finished products are stretched for 3 months.
Storage conditions: at room temperature.
Reference! Fruits of Aronia are a dietary product. Due to the low sugar content, 100 grams of berries contain 52 kcal.
Natural drink that preserves all the vitamins and therapeutic property chokeberry, as well as stress reliever - this is wine. The fruits of the shrub contain a small proportion of sugar (9%), so the fermentation process lasts longer than usual, the wine is sour, tart (due to the high content of tannins), but still not strong (quickly deteriorates), but it useful low-calorie drink. People with diabetes, overweight are advised to drink only this wine.
To prepare for any recipe collect dry, ripe, strong fruit, the quality of which depends on the taste of wine. They do not wash - this is important, wild wine yeast lives on the unpeeled black-skinned peel, thanks to which the juice ferments, and the mud turns into tartar, settles at the bottom of the tank, and is removed by filtration. Crush each berry with your hands or use various devices: a meat grinder, a grinder, a press.
The chernoplodka is a rather unaccountable berry, it is difficult to squeeze the juice out of it, it is not sweet, therefore wine makers add sugar to improve the taste of the wine and fermentation.

We pick berries from leaves, petioles and twigs, rinse and drain in a colander. Then we dry on a kitchen towel, periodically turning the fruit over. Now dry rowan portions are laid out in vacuum bags (preferably in one layer) and we try to get rid of the air in them as much as possible. Hermetically sealed bags of berries can be sent stored in the freezer.
How to dry in the oven black chokeberry
The berries are removed from the collected umbrellas and washed thoroughly, throwing it back in a colander. You can also spread out a thin layer on a kitchen towel.

After a time, the temperature in the cabinet rises to 60 ° C, and the berry is already drying to full readiness.

Sweets made of chokeberry: marshmallow, marmalade
For lovers of "sweet", who have no problems with overweight and irregular glucose, an exquisite delicacy will be marmalade and pastila made from black fruit - rowan puree.
In recipes for cooking, it is recommended to wipe the mashed potatoes through a sieve, but this is how the product loses the most important component of the black chokeberry - fiber, which promotes digestion, therefore it is more beneficial to leave the mashed potatoes unchanged (how to cook told in the recipe for jam), mix it with sugar and water, and boil it on the weak fire until thick.
Put the berry mass on a moistened cold baking sheet, evenly spreading a layer of 1.5 - 2 cm. Leave to dry at room temperature.
From the finished marmalade, you can cut different figures into cookie cutters or simply cut the strips with a knife, roll in sugar, fold into a jar with a ground in lid. Served to tea.
Chokeberry has its own sugars, so 800 grams of granulated sugar will be needed for 1 kg of berry puree, but it has little juice, 400 mg of water will be added.
- rowan puree 1 kg,
- granulated sugar 1 kg,
- egg white of two eggs.
We mix the berry mass with sugar, put it in a glass baking dish, cover with a lid, cook in the oven at 160 degrees until the juice is extracted.
We take the dishes out of the oven, mix thoroughly until sugar is completely dissolved. Mass acquires a jelly-like appearance. You can grind through a sieve, remove the fiber or leave to cool as it is, retaining all the useful fibers. Jelly is cold, attach raw proteins. Beat with a mixer until the marshmallow does not turn white.
An important stage is drying. There are 2 ways:
- “Rolls”: spread parchment paper on the table, spread the paste in a thin layer of a few mm (you can use a wide knife), leave to dry at room temperature. As soon as the layer has dried up, gently twist the tube, cut it into small rolls (the marsh is plastic, easy to form and lags behind the paper).
- “Puff paste”: divide the resulting “dough” into three parts, put one thin layer on a baking sheet, put it to dry in the oven, on the smallest fire, with the lid open or with convection.

When is it better to pick black chokeberry berries
Even if you don’t know exactly when it’s time to pick Aroni berries for harvesting for the winter, it’s easy to figure out this question. Rowan, like many other plants, begin to collect in the autumn period (September-October), because it is at this time that you will be able to collect well-ripened berries, which will later become excellent components of jam, a variety of compotes, liqueurs and other goodies.
In winter, they will be a real find, because any workpieces of chokeberry will be able to diversify the table and bring the body a lot of useful vitamins that increase immunity. If you are not accustomed to conservation, then the berries collected in the autumn are also perfect for drying or freezing. By the way, for preparing chokeberry without cooking, if you want to get a berry with the highest taste characteristics, it is preferable to collect the fruits of mountain ash after the first frost, when they reach their full perfection and are filled with the greatest amount of useful substances.
Preparing black fruits for drying
What you can do with chokeberry, you already understood, however, before moving on to conservation or drying, the collected fruits still need prepare properly.
So, before drying the chopped aronia after frosting, it must be removed from the umbrellas, washed well under running water and sifted, separating ripe and juicy berries from spoiled or deformed specimens. As soon as the water is drained and the fruits are slightly dry, they are laid out in a thin layer on a tray or plywood shields and start drying.
There are several ways to implement our plans. You can put the tray in the oven or a special dryer, or you can leave it under bright sunshine in a well-ventilated place. Each option has its own advantages and disadvantages, which we will discuss below.
Familiarize yourself with the beneficial properties of dark berries: currants, blueberries, blackberries, blueberries, black raspberries, elderberries, thorns.
Methods of drying rowanberry
As we just noted, there is three main ways drying berries of chokeberry: using a conventional household oven, using a special electric dryer and in the open air, under direct sunlight.
Of course, for quick drying you will need the thermal effects of electrical appliances, but if you don’t hurry anywhere and you have enough space, then natural drying will be a more acceptable option.
Drying berries outdoors is the easiest and least expensive way obtain well dried fruits of chokeberry. You only need to prepare the mountain ash in the above way, sprinkle on a baking sheet in a single layer and place it in a well-ventilated place, not forgetting to stir in the drying process.
When the fruits stop shrinking and become wrinkled, it will be possible to remove them for further storage. Nevertheless, if weather conditions or any other factors do not allow you to dry the fruits of black chokeberry well in a natural way, then you can complete the process by drying the berries in the oven at a temperature not exceeding +60 ° C. However, in any case, mountain ash should not lose its characteristic color and smell.

Many housewives prefer to carry out the drying of black chokeberry berries in a regular household oven. From a practical point of view, such a decision is quite explicable, since the time spent on harvesting fruits is much less. As in the previous version, the berries removed from the umbrellas are well washed and wait until the water is completely drained, but only before the fruit is placed directly in the oven, the fruit is laid out on a dry and clean towel, which should remove any residual liquid. After the berries dry well, they can be sent to the oven, preheated to + 40 ° C. At this temperature, the fruit should be dried for about half an hour, after which the temperature is raised to + 60 ° C and continue the process until the berries are fully prepared.
To determine whether the chokeberry has dried up or not, pay attention to the presence of water droplets on the fruits: if they are, then the drying is not over.
Important!When drying Aronia berries in the oven, they should not be red or brown in color, since in this case it is safe to say that the fruits are dry.
As with natural drying, the rowan is periodically mixed, not allowing it to lie long on one side. In addition, you can harvest chokeberry brushes, for which they are cut from the bush with scissors and strung on a thread, hung in the attic, porch or balcony.
Drying in the electric dryer
Modern household appliances make our life much easier, and the issues of harvesting seasonal fruits or berries also apply. So, in the presence of electric dryers, you can very quickly dry black chokeberry, while retaining the maximum amount of its beneficial properties. How to properly perform the drying in such a miracle device? Prepared berries (clean, without leaves and damaged specimens) are washed in running water and give it time to drain completely. After that, the fruits are laid out on a sieve in a thin layer (as when drying in the oven, not more than a few centimeters in thickness) and placed in an electric dryer, setting the temperature to + 60-70 ° C.
Important!Always strictly follow the instructions of the instrument. Usually it indicates the required time and other nuances concerning the operation of an electric dryer..
Well dried chokeberry should completely get rid of water, while maintaining its natural color (fruits should not get a red-brown shade). It should also be noted that with this method of drying the berries of black chokeberry lose unpleasant tartness, and their taste becomes sweetish with barely noticeable sourness.
How to store dried berries
The method of storage of chokeberry in many respects depends on the variant of its preparation. For example, packed in boxes fresh rowan Store in a dry place at a temperature of + 2-3 ° C and a humidity of 80-85%. In such conditions, the berries dry up and darken over time, but remain suitable for six months.
Slightly frozen frozen mountain ash Often strung on a string and hung in a dry and cold place (for example, in the attic or in the barn), and in areas with stable winter, it is stored in this way until the spring. As for good dried berries Aronii, then the best place to store them are plastic containers or glass containers tightly closed with nylon covers. You can also use wooden packaging, but the main condition is to protect the fruit from moisture. If this requirement is met, the workpiece can be stored for up to two years.

How to freeze black chokeberry
One of the most convenient ways to harvest berries for the winter is to use the freezer. Поэтому если ваш холодильник оснащен объемным морозильным отделением, следует рассмотреть вариант замороженной черноплодной рябины. Такие плоды всегда остаются свежими, а процесс их заготовки не требует никаких затрат.
Разумеется, как и любой другой вариант создания запасов на зиму, заморозка черноплодной рябины имеет свою инструкцию: having touched, washed and dried berries, they are placed in portion packets (mandatory condition) and tightly tied (can be soldered). After that, chokeberry is evenly laid out in the freezer compartment and left there until it is completely frozen. In some cases, the fruit can be frozen in bulk, and only then put in a tightly closed container.
