And how well you are familiar with Russian cuisine and - simultaneously - with the work of our fabulist, Krylov? He, by the way, not only fables wrote, there had shutotragediya poems, dating to 1800.. she "Podschipa" called. For those unfamiliar with her briefly explain - Podschipa - Russian Princess, to which woos German prince. That princess is not a princess. It's shutotragediya.
And is there a line on her face:
But remember that we
very different manners:
Do you like oysters,
and I do not suffer;
Otherwise you juicy,
I like their death.
You got used to the war
and endure heat and cold,
And any food there
you bait hunger;
And I'm only an elected
I like all the piece:
from chicken stomach.
Well, gentlemen, hit Russian cuisine for oysters but hamburgers? This is because now the chicken gizzards - navels - considered something fu, giblets and giblets. But in fact, one can make a meal, which is comparable to that in which the meat used.
True, it is necessary to try. Here the main secret - the stomachs of broiler reared do not understand anything, no matter how to cook, do not become tasty. Familiar dare to cook, were very disappointed.
But this is my (and, incidentally) taste. So if you want gizzards, almost like a princess - it is better to look from chickens raised on a natural diet, so to speak - where all sorts of worms, millet and so on.
A cook will be nothing out there from overseas, and the most that neither is a native, Russian - chicken navels in honey. Remember, this dish is often mentioned by listing what was served at the royal table or boyars.
Authenticity can not promise - still not a king I do not I Boyar. But... Given the plainness of the preparation, it is quite possible that this is what prepared navel century some sort of 16 or even earlier, and have the recipe came to us from there.
In short, take: 500 grams of chicken gizzards, 250 grams of onions and carrots, 3-4 tablespoons good cream, salt, pepper and fresh ginger to taste.
Prepare a piece of cake: eviscerated navels wash, remove all superfluous - the film, veins, fat. Together with finely chopped vegetables, they must be put in a pan with a thick bottom, cover with cold water and... put on the fire.
All we can say process of cooking is more your participation is not required. Only an hour before end of cooking, it is necessary to add salt, and for ten or fifteen minutes until cooked add the sour cream. Honey and grated ginger is added already at the end, and to taste.
