Notice: Its seeds can be stored in cool, dry, dark place in air sealed containers for many months and can be milled using hand mill whenever required. Ground and powdered caraway should be stored in the refrigerator in airtight containers and should be used as early as possible since it loses its flavor rather quickly.

  • Hello, Bright-Rubies!

    I think, it's an interesting blog! We're also having winter now! So, it's really vital to learn about popular hot drinks around the world! Your Caraway seems really delicious and healthy! Have you prepared it yourself?

    Ok, in Russia we mostly drink hot tea with lemon or with homemade jam 'varenie'. But there's an old hot Russian traditional winter drink - Sbiten! I drank it several times in my life, not very often. Now I want to prepare it myself. It's extremely healthy and delicious!

     

    Sbiten is a hot drink made from spices and herbs with honey or sugar. The drink goes back to about 1100 AD. Sbiten is considered a Russian national winter beverage.

    Ingredients:
    5 liters of filtered water; 800 g berry jam; 200 g honey; 2 g ginger; 2 g cloves; 1 g cinnamon…

    Method:
    Bring the water to a boil.
    Then tun heat to low and add honey and jam.
    Then 5 minutes later, add the spices to the water and let steep for 5 more minutes…

    Then Serve in mugs, steaming hot… (Enjoy)

    Note: This is a great New Years drink and can be made alcoholic by using red wine in place of the water…

    PS: Wine Sbiten

    To make Wine Sbiten you need:
    1L red dry wine
    150g honey
    0.1g each – cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg

    Add honey to wine and bring to boil. Take off the heat. Add cinnamon, cloves and nutmeg and leave for 30-40 min. Strain and serve hot.
