Shocked grandmother's recipe

We choose well-flowering shock flowers, we wash them lightly under running water, we shake them from possible gases and other impurities, we drain them in a sieve, then we place them in a 5 liter jar together with the sliced ​​lemon.

Put the caramelized sugar in a saucepan over low heat, when it takes on a beautiful amber brown color, put the pan aside and mix until all the sugar crystals melt. Quench the caramel with cold water, about a liter.

Pour the syrup into the jar, fill with cold water, add the crushed yeast. Be careful not to fill the jar up with water because the juice will ferment and you risk the liquid leaking out!

We cover the jar and put it in the sun for two or three days, depending on the outside temperature. From time to time we mix and taste the juice.

When it starts to ferment, to bubble and it has reached a pleasant, slightly acidic taste, we strain the juice and pour it into bottles. Store in the refrigerator.

How is it shocked? Shocking recipe

How is it shocked? Shock is a very popular plant in Romania, with many legends about its healing properties from the Middle East, northern Europe and Africa. Shock is a genus of plants in the group of shrubs, with 20-30 species. The genus belongs to the Adoxaceae family. The best known species is the black sock (Sambucus nigra).

The flowers of this plant appear in spring and have a pleasant odor, while the leaves have an unpleasant odor when rubbed in the hands. The fruits are in the form of black-purple berries of 6–8 mm, arranged in clusters.

Research has shown the beneficial properties of shock on the human body. For medicinal purposes, flowers, fruits and bark, rich in volatile oil, tannin, mucilages, flavonoids, amines, ethylamine, vitamin C and B-complex vitamins, isobutylamine, are used from shock.

To prepare the shock, you need a glass jar, similar to pickles. Wash the shock flowers well, but be careful not to shake them. Caramelize 5 tablespoons of sugar, then quench it with 1/2 l of water. Leave this syrup to cool.

Add the lemon slices, the shock flowers, the rest of the sugar and the yeast in the jar. Over these ingredients, add the caramelized syrup and the rest of the water. Mix well and cover the bowl without screwing on the lid. Instead of a lid, you can use a plastic wrap or a saucer.

Shocked & # 8211 old recipe from grandma

In each one I was shocked by the recipe inherited from my grandmother. And every time I get to do it towards the end of the season when the shock flower is in bloom. And as the weather is delayed here, there are already a few who are most shocked.

And I keep telling myself that it's too late to publish the recipe on the blog and I'm still postponing it. But this year I decided to take a picture and put the recipe on the blog even if now I don't think anyone makes shock juice (shocked). Although it is said that it could be made from very dry shock. I haven't tried this version yet but I will test and update this article.

This shocking recipe is a very old one and it always reminds me of my grandparents' holidays. It wasn't a year when Grandma didn't shock us. And how good she was and how happy I was when I drank it.

Great thing as ingredients you don't need. Just shock flowers, sugar (optional and some honey), lemon (or lemon salt), a little vinegar and obviously water. A lot of water! That's because the recipe is for a large 10-liter jar. Let's see how it's done.

Ingredients shocked homemade recipe without yeast

  • 12 large shock flowers (large, ie larger than the palm)
  • 400 grams of sugar
  • 2 large or 3 medium lemons, untreated (be one of those that contain as much juice as possible, not with a very thick peel)
  • 4.2 liters of plain water

Shocked homemade preparation

The recipe is so simple that it is almost not worth presenting with pictures step by step. Finally, being the specific of my blog, I will not deviate from it, just because today's recipe is so easy to make.

Harvesting and cleaning flowers

1. Shock flowers should be harvested in the first days after flowering, then they are the most fragrant and do not shake so easily. Also, the past shock flowers will become slightly bitter, implicitly and the shock prepared from them will have a bitter tint. Inevitably, shock flowers will contain fleas, dust, larvae and other things that surely no one wants as an ingredient in shock.

Fill the sink with cold water and add the flowers. We shake them one by one, in water, then we take them out in a sieve. Empty the sink, rinse it and repeat. I was amazed at the wide belt of "stuff" left on the sink, at the first water! We repeat, therefore, until the water remains clean (I washed the flowers in 4 waters). Remove the flowers on paper towels and wipe them, turning them several times. We check them carefully, lest some insects, with a stronger conservation instinct, have escaped.

Filling the jar

2. I prepared the shock in a 4.25 liter glass jar. It is important to use a glass container, because we make a recipe for soaking in the sun, so the sunlight must penetrate freely into the jar. So, for the first time, we put the washed and wilted shock flowers in the jar.

3. I poured the sugar over the shock flowers. If you like a sweeter shock, you can put more sugar, but I would not recommend more than 500 grams for this amount of water.

4. Wash the lemons with warm water and wipe them with a towel. Especially if we use treated lemons, we must insist until the wax on the surface of the lemons is removed. With a peeler, thinly peel the yellow part of one of the lemons. We avoid going deeper, because the white part of the shell is bitter. Add the lemon peel to the jar. Depending on how much we like the aroma of the shell, we can put it all, half or even less. I put it all on, because I really like it. I put a sieve on the mouth of the jar and store the lemons to the last drop. The seeds, bitter as well, will be retained by the sieve.

5. I filled the jar with plain water and that was all the work for a natural and very fragrant homemade shock.

6. The jar with the shock being finalized is easily covered, only with a saucer, not with the lid. I placed the jar in a sunny spot on the kitchen window sill. Depending on the weather and how much sun it has, the flowers will completely transmit their aroma in three to five days (if it is colder). We can mix once a day with a very clean spoon, if the sugar is deposited at the bottom of the jar.

Filtering and serving

7. My shock was full of sunshine, so in three days it was ready. I tasted it, I found it extremely fragrant and tasty. The next step is to filter through a fine sieve.

8. The filtered socata is bottled in bottles or in a dispenser, as I did. The juice is stored in the refrigerator and consumed in 4-5 days. For this period I guarantee, it has never lasted longer than that!
