Murătură iute / Spicy pickles

V-am povestit zilele saptamana trecuta pe Facebook ca am gasit cateva retete din vara pe care am tot uitat sa le pun sau pur si simplu le-am amanat si le-a trecut sezonul. Daca mai pun la socoteala si retetele pe care le-am publicat pe Gustos atunci chiar am de recuperat.
Prima dintre aceste retete este cea de muratura iute - o varianta fara telina. Iata ce am folosit eu:
 -1 kg kg de ceapa
- 1 kg de ardei iuti
- 1 kg morcovi
- 6-7 gogosari
- 3 L de apa
- 1/2 L de otet
- 3 linguri de zahar
- sare, piper, foi de dafin

I told you last week on Facebook that I found some recipes made last summer that I  forgot to put on my blog or I simply delayed them too much and the season just passed. If I count the recipes that I  published on Gustos.ro  then I really have to recover much.
The first of these recipes is the hot pickle - a version without celery. Here's what I've used:
-1 kg of onions
- 1 kg of chilli pepper
- 1 kg carrots
- 6-7 red bell peppers
- 3 l of water
- 1 l of vinegar
- 3 tablespoons of sugar
- salt, pepper, bay leaves




Am avut niste ardei iuti de la prietena mea Simona, care anul trecut a avut o gradina absolut fabuloasa. Numai in reclamele de la TV am mai vazut asemenea legume si fructe cum am vazut in gradina ei! Si unde mai pui ca au fost crescute fara ingrasaminte, crescute cu mult drag.
M-am tot gandit cum sa pregatesc ardeii mai ales ca fiind rosii era absolut clar ca sunt extrem de iuti. Si mi-am adus aminte de o reteta de-a mamei pe care am modificat-o putin. Mi s-a parut ca merge mult mai bine aceasta muratura fara telina sau cel putin asa imi place mie mai mult.

I had some hot peppers from my friend Simona. She had last year an absolutely fabulous garden. Only in the TV ads I've seen such fruits and vegetables  like in her garden! And I should mention that they were grown without any fertilizer, raised with much love.
I've been thinking how to prepare red peppers especially because it was absolutely clear that they were extremely hot. And I remembered one of my mother's recipes that was a little bit modified. I found that this pickle is much tasty without celery or it's just me who likes it that way.


Nu am fost eu prea curajoasa incat sa tai ardeiul iute cu un cutit. Am preferat sa-l tai cu ...o foarfeca! Si am taiat, si am taiat :)
Bineinteles ca trebuie sa-i si spalati; uitasem sa va spun...

I wasn't brave enough to use a knife to cut the chili peppers. I preferred to cut them...with scissors!  An I cut, and I cut :)
Of course you'll have to wash them first; I forgot to mention that...




Apoi curatam ceapa si gogosarii si le taiem in bucatele de marime potrivita.
Urmeaza morcovii pe care-i curatam, ii spalam si ii razuim pe razatoarea mare.

Then clean the onion and red bell peppers and cut them into  medium pieces.
We will peel and wash the carrots. After that we will grate them.


Amestecam bine legumele intr-un vas mare. Sub nici o forma cu mana. Nu ai o senzatie prea placuta dupa aceea :)
Apoi punem apa la fiert impreuna cu sarea si condimentele. Cand incepe sa fiarba adaugam zaharul si otetul  si mai lasam sa fiarba 3-4 minute. Apoi turnati continutul oalei peste legume si acoperiti vasul. Cand amestecul s-a racit il vom pune in borcane. Se depoziteaza intr-un loc rece si intunecos.

We'll mix well the vegetables in a big dish. Under no circumstances with your hands. You won't have a nice sensation after that :)
Then put water to boil with salt and condiments. When water starts to boil add sugar and vinegar and let it boil for 3-4 minutes. Then pour the  hot content over the vegetables and cover the dish. When the mixture is cooled we will put the spicy pickles in jars. Store them in a cool and dark place.


Folositi aceasta muratura iute pentru ciorbe sau orice alt fel de mancare :)
Pofta buna!

Use this hot and spicy pickle for soups or any other type of food :)
Bon appétit!
