Squash caviar is no less a popular snack than eggplant. Moreover, this vegetable is not whimsical to weather conditions and grows on a scale in the beds of many Russians. Even in the cold summer, he manages to mature to the desired state. Interestingly, until the 16th century, they did not eat the flesh, but the seeds of zucchini. Some do not like this vegetable very much for its rustic taste, but it can be ennobled by the addition of other vegetables, spices or greens and get simply chic and festive dishes at the exit. Squash caviar is no exception. In addition, zucchini is a very useful and low-calorie product, for 100g of which there are only 24 calories.

Zucchini caviar - general principles and methods of cooking

Squash caviar has many cooking options. It is made with mushrooms, mayonnaise, tomatoes, tomato paste, eggplants, they add a lot of spices or they cost the standard ground black pepper, but the cooking method is almost the same - they fry the vegetables (boil less often), grind them in a meat grinder (blender) and evaporate to the desired thickness. .

Zucchini caviar - food preparation

For cooking caviar they use both young zucchini and overripe.
Young fruits can not be cleaned, but the ripe ones must be freed from the coarse skin and remove the core with hard seeds - this is convenient to do with a spoon.

Zucchini caviar - the best recipes

Recipe 1: Caviar Caviar

It is good to know that the dish that is to be tasted is not only tasty, but also healthy. Zucchini is rich in minerals and vitamins - it contains a lot of potassium, iron, magnesium, fiber, phosphorus, copper, vitamin C and group B, and other vegetables contained in caviar only strengthen this storehouse of nutrients. Moreover, the caviar in this recipe turns out delicious, it can be immediately served to the table or canned for the winter. Tomato paste in the recipe can be replaced with fresh tomatoes. 5-6 large fruits peeled (initially pouring boiling water) and chopped up with a knife or meat grinder. True, the eggs will have to be stewed a little more so that the liquid from the tomatoes has evaporated.

Ingredients: 3 kilograms of zucchini, 2-3 tbsp. spoons of tomato paste, 1 kg of onions and carrots, one table. spoon of sugar, 6 cloves of garlic, 1.5 st.l. salt, greens (parsley, dill), 2 tablespoons of 9% vinegar, black pepper (ground).

Cooking method

Peeled vegetables cut: onion in half rings, zucchini diced carrots on a coarse grater. Heat the oil in a frying pan, fry the zucchini, then shift to another bowl. It is better to get them with a slotted spoon, trying to keep the flowing oil in the pan. Fry the onions in this butter and shift to the zucchini. At least on the same skillet, browned the carrots, adding, if necessary, oil. Vegetables cool and grind in a blender (in a meat grinder). Transfer the mass to a cast-iron cauldron or a large frying pan (stew pan) and simmer for 50 minutes on a quiet fire. 10 minutes before being ready, add tomato paste, sugar, pepper, salt, chopped garlic and greens to the vegetable mass, pour in vinegar and stew for another 10 minutes. Spread hot caviar in jars (0.65l), sterilize for 50 minutes and spin. Wrap in heat (cover with a blanket) and leave to cool. If you do not plan to roll up the caviar, you do not need to add vinegar. In this case, the ready-made caviar needs to be cooled, you can decorate it with greens.

Recipe 2: Zucchini caviar with mayonnaise

An unusual ingredient in this recipe is mayonnaise. It softens the taste, gives it interesting notes. Caviar is tender and very tasty. If you remember that the main components of mayonnaise are vegetable oil and yolks, then you can not worry that it can spoil the dish. It is recommended to take good quality mayonnaise. And even better to do it yourself. In the presence of a blender, this business will take a few minutes. It is necessary to mix 2 yolks, a glass of vegetable oil (200-250 ml), half a teaspoon of salt and finished mustard, 1 tbsp of lemon juice or vinegar 6% (table, apple). Another nuance - vegetables for this caviar, except onions, are not fried in oil, but boiled in water.

Ingredients: zucchini - 3 kg, half a kilo of bell pepper, 4-5 medium onions, carrots 2 pcs., 2 tablespoons of tomato paste, 250 ml of mayonnaise, salt.

Cooking method

Peel and boil carrots, peppers, and zucchini (in salted water). Pepper cooks faster, so you can get it out of the water a little earlier, when it becomes soft, and leave carrots and zucchini to boil. Ready vegetables cool.
Onion cut into half rings, fry. Boiled cooled vegetables with fried onions scroll in a meat grinder or chop in a blender. Shredded vegetable mass to shift in a cauldron or large frying pan and simmer for half an hour. Then add mayonnaise and tomato paste, salt to your taste and simmer for another half hour. If caviar turned out to be watery, leave on the plate for another 20-30 minutes, until the excess liquid has evaporated. Serve chilled. If there are not so many eaters, you can halve the amount of ingredients in the recipe.

Recipe 3: Squash caviar with mushrooms

You can diversify the composition of caviar and give the dish an original taste using mushrooms. Mushrooms are indicated in the recipe, but they can be replaced by other mushrooms, for example, white or oyster mushrooms. This caviar is served as a separate dish, in addition to meat or, as a sandwich, on a slice of toasted bread.

Ingredients: 1kg zucchini, 1 carrot, fleshy bell pepper and large onion, 2 large tomatoes, half lemon juice, 0.5 kg of champignons, a small bunch of dill and green onions, vegetable oil, salt and pepper.

Cooking method

Peeled zucchini coarsely grate, salt and mix. Washed mushrooms put in boiling water, do not forget to salt it. Boil for 10 minutes on low heat, then drain the water, drain the mushrooms in a colander, cool. Cooled up mushrooms to crumble straws.

Fry the onion slices cut in butter (until transparent). Mix peeled and coarsely grated carrots with onions and fry for about 3 minutes. Squash squeeze the juice from the juice and transfer to the onion and carrot in the pan. Fry everything together, stirring for about 15 minutes. If the mass will burn, add a little oil.

While vegetables are roasting, you can grate the pepper. For this it is better to take a large thick-walled fruit. Wash, cut into halves, remove seeds, grate on a coarse grater to the skin, i.e. wipe off all the flesh. Put the resulting mass in the pan to the zucchini. Send the mushrooms there. Caviar mix and fry for 15 minutes.

It's time to think about tomatoes. Fruits cut into two parts and also, like the pepper, grate to the skin on a coarse grater. Squeeze lemon juice into tomato paste and pour it into the pan. Stew the caviar until the liquid evaporates, stirring so as not to burn. At the end of the quenching add chopped greens to the mass, put pepper and salt. Give the calves to infuse under the lid closed.

And another option cooking caviar with mushrooms. The ingredients are the same, with minor modifications: onions are excluded, but garlic is added (4 cloves). Cooking method:

Grind alternately zucchini, peppers, carrots, mushrooms on a coarse grater, put in a pan (or cauldron) and simmer in vegetable oil until moisture evaporates. Then add the tomato mass (grated tomatoes) and simmer again, evaporating the excess liquid. At the end add lemon juice, salt, herbs, pepper and chopped garlic.

Zucchini caviar - useful tips from experienced chefs

If you buy squash caviar in the store, try to choose products that are produced during the vegetable harvest season (July-September). So more likely you get on the caviar, made from fresh zucchini, and not frozen. In caviar prepared from frozen vegetables, a layer of liquid will clearly stand out on the surface. Such caviar is also edible, just less tasty and healthy.

Choosing zucchini

To cook caviar at home, it is necessary to choose zucchini with a thin delicate skin up to 20 cm in size. There should be no spots or visible damage on the surface. Such zucchini is not necessary to clean, a thin skin is also useful for the body, as well as tender juicy flesh. In small vegetables, small seeds, they are not felt in the blanks. If caviar contains larger and more mature zucchini, they need to be cleaned of “clothes” and the ripe seeds removed.

Tip! For spins for the winter, it is best to use harvests that ripen in August and September.

Caviar from zucchini for the winter recipe fingers lick

This recipe is very simple to prepare. And at the same time it turns out very tasty. Not for nothing the people call him “Fingers you will lick”! It turns out to be airy, tender, sunny, beautiful and incredibly tasty!

In the ingredient set, two values ​​are given. For the first value you get 5-6 half liter cans. According to the second value (I used it), two 650-gram cans were obtained.

  • zucchini - 3 kg (1.5 kg)
  • carrots - 1.5 kg (750 g)
  • onions - 750 gr (400 gr)
  • tomato paste - 3 tablespoons (1.5 tablespoons)
  • vegetable oil - 300 ml (150 ml)
  • sugar - 7 tbsp. spoons (3.5 tablespoons)
  • salt - 3 tbsp. spoons without a slide (1.5 tablespoons)
  • pepper - 1 teaspoon (incomplete) 0.5 teaspoons)
  • water - 3/4 cup (0.5 cup)
  • Vinegar 9% - 70 ml (35 ml)

In the recipe that reached me, vinegar was not originally. But I add it. Firstly, it tastes better with it, and secondly, it contributes to a better preservation of the finished preservation.

You add it to taste and desire.

1. All vegetables are peeled. Zucchini clean from seeds, if they are large. Pay attention that their weight is given in the recipe without seeds and peel.

2. Squash and onions cut into cubes.

3. Grate carrots.

4. We will cook in a cauldron, so we put all the prepared vegetables in it. Pour water. And set on fire to stew.

You can also use a large saucepan with a thick bottom, as well as a cooking basin.

After boiling, we mark 40 minutes, cover with a lid and reduce the fire to the minimum. During this time periodically stir.

5. After the allotted time, lay the vegetables in a colander and give the opportunity to drain excess liquid.

Juice vegetables let enough. So that the blank does not turn out to be liquid, it must be drained, but do not pour it out. It may still be useful.

6. Then put the vegetables in a bowl and using a blender, we pure them until smooth.

7. Then again lay out in a cauldron, or pot, add vegetable oil, tomato paste. I use tomato paste “Tomato”, it has a bright rich taste and beautiful color.

Pour salt, sugar and pepper. All thoroughly mixed and sent to the gas stove.

Add all flavors to your taste. For me it fits exactly in such proportions, for someone else the proportions may be different. This will not affect storage!

8. After boiling, mark 30 - 35 minutes. The moment of boiling is rather difficult to determine, since the mass turned out to be dense. I define this by the characteristic "puff" during mixing. By the way, be careful at this moment, the caviar can "shoot".

Simmer on very low heat under the lid. Do not forget to periodically stir.

It is necessary that the caviar is well boiled and boiled. We get it thick and heavy, and therefore it should be steamed very carefully so that the fermentation process does not start in the jar.

9. Stir frequently to prevent it from burning. If only a hint of this begins to appear, you can add a couple of tablespoons of drained juice.

10. After 30 minutes, pour in the vinegar and mix. Cover again and cook for another 5 minutes. During this time, stir a couple more times so that the acid can be evenly distributed.

Add the amount of vinegar to your taste. If the banks are sterilized, then you can do without it at all. I add it in the proportion indicated in the recipe. For whom it is a lot, add it less. To first pour in half, try. If necessary, you can add.

There is also such a feature that immediately after cooking, when the caviar is hot, it may seem sour. But when it cools, the taste will not be sour. It will be quite balanced.

11. Put ready caviar in sterilized jars. Делайте это не торопясь, положите сначала четверть-банки, и хорошенько ее встряхните, или придавите ложкой. Так как жидкости у нас довольно мало, внутри будут постоянно образовываться воздушные пузырьки. Наша задача – избавиться от них, они могут вызывать процессы брожения.

Таким образом, постепенно заполнить емкость до самого конца, но не под горлышко. Оставить миллиметра 3 свободного пространства. Накрыть простерилизованными крышками. And from now on, they will not open.

12. I prefer to sterilize such preform. I do this solely because the finished product turns out to be very thick, and no matter how I get rid of the air bubbles, they will still remain inside. And during sterilization, under the influence of heat, they will rise up and come out.

The same method of cooking can be left without sterilization, but in this case it will be necessary to make the product more liquid, that is, add more drained juice. But if you still see bubbles when laying in a jar, then it is necessary to sterilize.

For sterilization, put the jars in a saucepan with warm water, which is pre-lined with gauze, and bring it to a boil. Half-liter containers should be sterilized for 30 minutes, 650 - gram 35 - 40 minutes.

During sterilization, the product will not lose its taste at all, but it will be better kept.

13. We twist a container, overturn and cover with a rug. Leave until completely cooled "under a fur coat."

As you can see, the recipe is so simple that even those who have never preserved anything can cope with its preparation.

I must say that the preparation of such a billet is perhaps the easiest way to harvest vegetables for the winter.

Very good and the people love the following recipe. About him and will be discussed below. And also will be provided with detailed step by step instructions.

Squash caviar, as shop according to GOST

When we lived in the times of the USSR, everyone dreamed of having this recipe. They called it "shop caviar" or made according to GOST. Now this recipe is available to everyone, and it can be prepared at home, observing the proportions of ingredients and cooking technology. And it's not at all difficult to do.

We will need (the recipe is given for one 650 g jar):

  • zucchini - 1.5 kg
  • carrot - 90 gr
  • onion - 60 gr
  • tomato paste - 120 gr
  • white roots - celery, parsnip, parsley - 25 gr
  • salt - 1 tsp (better to taste)
  • sugar - 1.5 tsp
  • var. oil - 4 tbsp. spoons
  • Allspice black pepper and peas - 1.5 gr

1. Wash squash and peel. If they are small in size, then just cut them into cubes. If they are large, then you need to remove the seeds from them. Very easy to do with a spoon.

Note that their weight is given in a purified state. That is, without peel and seeds, the weight should be 1.5 kg.

2. Cut the vegetable into cubes with a side of 1.5-2 cm.

3. Onion cut into small cubes.

4. Carrot rubbed on a coarse grater.

5. Root also rubbed on a coarse grater. According to GOST, they are taken in the following proportion - parsnip root is 50% of the total root, and parsley and celery roots are 25% each.

6. For frying try using thick-walled dishes, a griddle or a cauldron. In them, heating will proceed evenly, and all ingredients will be roasted evenly. In addition, in this dish nothing will burn.

Caviar preparation will take place without adding water, so during the whole process you should closely monitor the roasting and periodically mix the contents. When frying products should not be burnt, it will give an ugly look, smell and taste.

7. First fry zucchini. Warm up the pan with high sides. It is in it that I will cook. I have a small volume, so it will be enough. If you prepare it in a larger volume, it is better to use a cauldron.

8. Pour some oil. We will fry in three batches, so initially pour 2 tablespoons of oil, and fry the first batch on it. We post the first part.

9. Fry to a slightly ruddy color. Brown dark color is not allowed. Periodically stir it so that they are roasted evenly from all sides.

10. As soon as the first batch is fried, we immediately take it out and lay the next one, adding a spoonful of butter. Usually we put the fried pieces on paper towels to make the glass excess oil. In this case, we do not. The finished dish should have an oily structure.

11. After frying the second batch, remove it from the pan and lay the next one, the last one, adding another spoonful of butter. You can also drain the oil into the pan from the plate, in which are already fried pieces.

12. Onions, carrots and roots can be fried in a separate frying pan. And you can wait until all the zucchini roasts, and continue to fry on this one.

13. I fry in the same pan, drain the oil from the plate. First, fry the onions until golden brown. Then add carrots and roots. Fry, but rather simmer on very low heat. I cover the pan with a lid so as not to lose moisture.

14. As soon as the carrots and roots are limp, turn off the fire. Mix all the vegetables with the roots in a bowl.

15. Now we need to mash the contents. We use a blender or meat grinder. Choose the consistency yourself. You can make caviar in the form of mashed potatoes, and you can in the form of small grains.

16. Put the mashed potatoes in the pan again and bring to a boiling state over a very slow fire. I close the pan with a lid, so the contents will heat up faster and moisture will not evaporate.

17. Periodically open the lid and mix. Due to the fact that the pan thick edges, nothing burns. The process is excellent!

18. Stew for 25 minutes.

19. Cooking pepper. As can be seen from the recipe, we need 1.5 grams of pepper. How to count? Very simple for those who have electronic scales. If there are none, then prepare 5 peas of allspice and 16 peas of black peas. Pepper need to grind. This can be done in a mortar, and you can use a coffee grinder.

20. After 15 minutes of stewing under the lid and stirring, add tomato paste. I use Tomato paste, I like its taste and bright color. And this means that the color and taste of the future dish will be at its best. Although get ready, it will be slightly sour (we have enough paste for this).

Also add salt and sugar. All mix, bring to a boil again under the lid and simmer for 5 minutes.

21. Then add the last ingredient - crushed pepper. Add it, mix and simmer another 5 minutes.

22. Cool caviar, or hot smear on bread and eat with pleasure.

23. If they were preparing it for harvesting for the winter, then transfer it to a prepared sterilized jar. Lay tight, help yourself with a spoon. No air bubbles should form in the can.

We have repeatedly considered how to sterilize banks, so I will not repeat. If you do not know how to do this, then the whole process can be viewed here.

24. After you have filled the jar to the brim, cover it with a sterilized lid and screw it in with a seaming machine. Then turn over, putting on the cover, and cover with a blanket. Leave to cool. Then turn it over and place it in a cool place away from the battery.

As you can see, this recipe does not require sterilization.

Sometimes fresh greens, mainly parsley, are also added to this recipe. It can be added if it was not possible to find white roots. If you don’t have your own plot and you don’t grow roots yourself, you can only find them in a large supermarket, and even then not in full.

Therefore, instead of roots, you can add greens. It will not greatly affect the taste. It can also be harvested in jars. The only thing that needs to be done is to dry it thoroughly. Parsley is capricious, and can cause fermentation.

Caviar in this recipe turns out very tasty. Not for nothing in Soviet times so loved products with the abbreviation GOST. And everyone knows what it means. This is a sign of quality, the state standard. It is according to this standard that we laid the number of ingredients. Therefore, it should be ours just “shop”, and not some other.

The following tasty recipe is very tasty and easy to prepare. I recommend to take note of it. Due to the addition of garlic, a new spicy note appears in it.

But for a change, we’ll make some adjustments to the recipe, and cook it differently. In a simpler way.

Squash caviar - homemade caviar recipe

Caviar from zucchini is an amazing dish. It goes well with any side dish, is good with black bread and is very tasty in winter. The cost of cooking caviar is small, and the result is always happy. From the huge mass of recipes, I chose for you the simplest and delicious - such caviar could be tasted only in grandma's kitchen, a purely homemade, time-tested recipe.

What we need:

  • Young squash "from the garden" - 1.5 kg.
  • Onions - two pieces (medium size).
  • Carrots - two pieces (choose a bright orange, sweet).
  • Garlic - two teeth.
  • Salt, red pepper, ground nutmeg - to taste.
  • Tomato paste - about one Art. spoons.
  • Dill.
  • Vegetable oil.

Grate zucchini or grate through a meat grinder and let it stand for 30 minutes. The juice that has stood out, drain (you can add it to any broth or even send it to freeze). Zucchini stew in its own juice for 30 minutes.

Onions and carrots finely chopped (chop onions, carrots three). Fry onion until golden, then add carrots and fry again.

Stewed squash mass is drained (if the juice is separated) and mixed with roasted vegetables. At this stage, the eggs must be salted. If you do this after adding tomato paste or before draining the juice, you can make a mistake. For those housewives who prefer iodized salt - salt at the very end.

Stew vegetable mass 5 minutes.

Lay the grated garlic, finely whipped dill, spices, tomato paste. After the vegetables are steeped, remove the sample. If you like fine pasty caviar - whip the mass in a blender or scroll in a meat grinder with a fine mesh.

This caviar is especially tasty cold - when all the flavors are mixed and how it should be infused.

It is better to consider the option in a glass container - everything is visible.

The correct courgette caviar has a pleasant light brown color, although the color is difficult to convey in writing .. If the caviar is more orange, this suggests that besides the courgettes, he added some vegetables, pumpkin or carrots. Reddish hue - probably a bit too much tomato paste. This naturally does not affect the usefulness or proper preparation, there are different recipes, but the taste, according to experts, becomes worse.

But if there is water on the surface, then it is better not to take the product at all. This is a sign that it is not made from fresh, but from frozen zucchini.
Before you put the jar in the basket, arrange it another test. If you turn the jar upside down, the caviar should drain slowly, it means that there are enough natural vegetables in it. And if it is too fast, it will say about excess water. However, to save on vegetables and at the same time give the product the necessary thickness, some manufacturers add flour or starch.
