Oil and onions, oil and carrots: interaction

In recent years, the real trouble is with the quality of sunflower oil. I do not mean cold-pressed oil, which is suitable only in salads, but industrial-produced, in large quantities, sunflower oil. Ruthless competition between manufacturers, the desire to make the product even cheaper leads to a decrease in the quality of oil – and already far from the best.

Meanwhile, our health depends on the quality of vegetable oil and fats no less than on the quality of drinking water.

I want to talk about geese that most of their lives walked freely on the grass, swam in ponds and who began to feed intensely only when the snow fell, so that by the New Year they would gain fat and weight. These geese have completely different meat, it even differs in color, it is much denser, tougher, but also … tastier.

So, we are faced with two tasks: to bring the salt to deep, at the very bones, located parts of the meat and make the bird softer. Continue reading
