The season of preparations has begun, and I wondered how to make lecho of pepper and tomato for the winter, so that it was simple and easy. And I found such a simple recipe that helped me and would help a novice chef to make delicious vegetable blanks.
The main secret of this recipe is vegetables. Pepper is only red and fleshy, with no signs of spoilage, with elastic skin and thick-thick flesh. Tomatoes also choose red, tomatoes can be overripe, slightly soft, but also without rot and damage. It will take a meat grinder or blender to turn the tomatoes into mashed potatoes, and a large pan with a thick bottom for cooking.
Such blanks can be stored in a city apartment at room temperature, but to improve preservation, it is desirable to sterilize jars of vegetables.
It takes 45 minutes to cook. From the ingredients listed in this recipe, you get 1 l lecho.
- sweet red pepper - 1 kg;
- tomatoes - 650 g;
- vegetable oil - 50 ml;
- sugar - 30 g;
- salt - 15 g;
