As a children we used to put the branch into an anthill. Ants excrete methanoic acid and branch becomes sour. It was very good to lick of thirst 🙂
And Please. Never. Never. Do not destroy the anthill.
Did you know?
For a country that covers only a little over 45,000 km2, it has an estimated population of 1.3 million and it one of the most sparsely populated countries in Europe, with almost 50% covered by forest.
all ingenious is simple and all simple is ingenious.
Last year I introduced to you Pletskid- Estonian flat bread from very difficult and poor time. When people had just few potatoes and little bit oil.
Vatskid are from South Estonia, as well, but little bit more advanced version. From times when people had at least some buttermilk 🙂
Vatskid was baked on oven on the cabbage leaf. Believe, the most complicated in this recipe is to remove leaves from cabbage 🙂 Cabbage leaf helps keep moisture.
