On Saturday morning, I was awakened by the scent of roasted pancakes. My eighteen-year-old daughter took a cookie apron and pleasantly surprised the whole family. I was amazed at one sentence. "So now you can get married ...".
Pancakes are fragrant, light, a few stacked on top of each other, mixed with a jam of berries, raspberries and strawberries with chilli, garnished with whipped cream, blueberries, and lemon verbena leaves.
Raw materials for pancake dough:
3 bananas 3 eggs 1-2 tablespoons of smooth wheat flour
Mash the bananas, add the eggs, and mix them together. Gradually add the flour and stir again. The mixture should be liquid, but should not drain too much in the pan. Pancake mixes pour into dry heated pan and roast on both sides. After cooling, we smear the top of the pancake with marmalades and put them 5 on each other. We wash 33% of the cream and apply it to the upper part of the combined pancake before serving. Decorate with blueberries, green lemon verbena leaves and serve.
Marmalades - raspberry, blackberry and strawberry with chilli are my own, made from a mixture of fruit, pepper, fruit pectin and cane sugar.
Lemon Verbena (Lippia citriodora): The plant comes from South America. It is multi-year but not winter-resistant. The intense lemon scent of Verbena will surely amaze us. Its taste is just as intense, lemon and delicate. In the kitchen, we use leaves to prepare teas, beverages, fruit cups, dressings, sauces, vegetable and meat dishes, fish soups, salad dressings. Its action is strengthening, regenerating, supporting the birth activity, calming, promoting digestion. Folk healers in South America recommend painting wounds caused by insects by Aloysia leaves. In the form of tea, it is used for the treatment of asthma, cold, stomach problems, toothache, migraine and depression. It dampens the inflamed bronchial mucosa and the congestion of the nasal mucosa. Fresh leaves are applied to non-healing wounds and even on open leg ulcers. The inhalation of Lemon Verbena smells anti-depressant and soothes. It also repels insects.
Chilli: In marmalade production, I crushed small spheres of the wild form of one of the most delicious chilli peppers Capsicum chinensis cv.Aji Charapita in a mixture of strawberries.
Strawberries (Fragaria vesca): they Improve skin diseases - eczema, rashes, acne. Strawberries help with anaemia. They can reduce rheumatic pain problems and detoxify the blood. Strawberries act to prevent cancer and slow down ageing. They improve nerve condition, heart condition, blood vessels, kidneys, digestion.
Blackberries: they contain lots of vitamins (C, B, P) and minerals (phosphorus, iron, magnesium, calcium). Blackberries promote regeneration and encourage immunity. Therefore, they are an excellent and appropriate supplement to diet for convalescence, fatigue and colds. They also improve the state of the vascular system. Recommended for arteriosclerosis, varicose veins, haemorrhoids. Blackberries can help with erectile dysfunction due to increased blood flow. Children can drink honey-flavored fruit tea during any troubles in the respiratory tract (a cough, upper and lower respiratory tract inflammation, pneumonia).
Raspberries (Rubus idaeus): they contain a lot of vitamins (C, E, B1, B3, B12, A) and minerals (iron, copper, phosphorus, magnesium, zinc, calcium and potassium). An excellent remedy for feverish viral diseases is raspberry juice or tea from their fruits. It also promotes sweating and thus excretion of waste matter from the body and suppressing fever. Helps in incontinence, including night-care of children. Raspberries are also a great tool for gentlemen - it increases testosterone levels and, in general, has a very positive effect on erectile dysfunction and other sexual functions including impotence and male infertility. They have an effect on immunity and prevent civilisation diseases.
Blueberries (Vaccinium myrtillus): Fresh berries contain a lot of vitamins (C, B2, B5, B6, provitamin A) and minerals (iron, magnesium, calcium, manganese, copper, chromium and zinc). Fruits reduce cholesterol, improve the firmness and elasticity of the blood vessels, and are therefore a suitable supplement for dietary atherosclerosis, varicose veins or venous insufficiency of the lower limbs, as well as preventing heart attacks. Another curative effect of blueberries is the area of the visual system (strengthening eyesight, improving night vision, sharpening vision, improving retinal blood circulation. They also help with fading eyesight or blindness. Blueberries can slow cell ageing, prevent cancer and other civilisation diseases. Blueberry juice contributes to hydrate during flu and cold because it provides fluid and nutrition while reducing fever.
Bananas: they are excellent anti-depressants, they help to regain a good mood. Bananas improve endurance and great concentration. They contain high levels of magnesium, calcium, potassium and vitamins (C, B and provitamin A). Bananas soothe and help us to fall asleep. They are an excellent diet for digestive problems such as stomach problems, disturbed mucous membranes in the digestive tract (ulcers) and diarrhoea. They contain high potassium levels - an element that in our body indispensably - regulates water retention in the body and promotes drainage.
