Servings

We will get a jar of ~ 500 g of cornelian cherry paste with honey, ie about 25 servings of 20g serving (1 tbsp = 1 serving)

Ingredients

Estimated cost: 1.1

Materials

  • - glass container (jar) of at least 500ml;
  • - blender that can also grind the kernels (nutribullet);

Preparation

  • Cornelian Cherry with Honey Paste - Preparation step 1We wash the cornelian cherry well and drain them of the excess water;
  • Cornelian Cherry with Honey Paste - Preparation step 2We are going to mix the fruits and mix the paste formed with the honey.
    → I chose to use the cornelian cherry with all the seeds, they are healthy, but for that you have to have a strong blender that will grind your seeds well.
    → If you don't have a powerful blender, you will need to remove the pips from the fruits (when they are very ripe, they come off very easily).
    ⚠ Make sure the kernels are well mixed and there are no large chunks left to break when you eat the pasta;
    → If you are using pitted horns, add them to the blender along with the honey, and mix for ~ 10-30 seconds.
    ❗ If mixing is cumbersome, you can add up to 50ml of water to the blender to make it easier. Personally, I avoid excess water, because this way the formed paste will last longer.
    You will get a delicate paste, of a splendid, reddish color, which in addition to many beneficial effects, is an exceptional digestive stimulant.
  • In order to potentiate the properties of the forest cornelian cherry, we will leave it to macerate for at least 24 hours, after which the mixture can be consumed as such.

Observations
→ Cornus mas / Cornelian cherry / European cornel / Cornelian cherry dogwood ←

Bee honey will practically enhance the benefits and properties of forest horns.

❗ The amount of honey can be adjusted according to taste and needs;

❗ Fruits, if well ripened, break off very easily and so the seeds can be easily removed.

⚠ For diabetics, a much smaller amount of bee honey is recommended, possibly acacia honey!

⚠ If you grind the seeds, you must make sure that the blender / mixer can grind these seeds finely. Be careful not to damage your teeth if large pieces of pips remain in the paste!

Storage and shelf life: Honey horn paste must be stored in the refrigerator and recommended for consumption as soon as possible, up to 3 months.

Administration

1-3 tablespoons a day is recommended, preferably on an empty stomach, 30 minutes before meals (for better assimilation).

Cures of 14 days are recommended, with a break of 7 days between them.

⚠ Not recommended for babies!

→ For children, the version with ground nuts is not recommended.

→ Especially for the version with seeds ground, when you consume a spoonful of pasta, chew lightly, possibly hold the pasta a little under your tongue, until you feel that it dissolves easily. This way you ensure a better assimilation of the nutrients and in addition you make sure that if there are small pieces of seeds left, you will not damage your teeth ...
