Pancakes are the staple food of hometown people, with a long history. There are three kinds of pancakes in my hometown. One is made of pure millet flour, called "rice pancakes". At that time, only a few families ate them occasionally, which were used for visiting relatives and friends or entertaining guests during the holidays; one was called "two meter pancakes" made of corn and sorghum; the other was "sweet potato dry pancakes" made of corn, sorghum and dried sweet potato Family food. There are three kinds of Pancakes: one is the pancakes with fermented pancakes, called "sour pancakes"; the other is the pancakes with non fermented pancakes, called "sweet pancakes"; and the other is between the two, called "sweet and sour pancakes".
The main ingredient of pancakes is pancake paste. Before the 1970s, making pancakes in my hometown was an ancient and primitive family workshop. In my impression, making pancake paste seems simple, but in fact it is very complicated and laborious. First of all, the raw materials for making pancake paste, such as corn, sorghum or rice, are dusted out with a dustpan. After three or four hours, the corn and sorghum grains will bubble up in the water. Then, the stone mill will grind in circles, and gradually there will be yellow juice flowing along the lines on the grinding plate In the porcelain pot under the millstone, "spin dry the Qiong liquid on the mill, and boil the yellow flowers in the moon stall.". When the mill is finished, brush the remaining juice on and off the disc with water. It takes more than an hour to grind, and then move the porcelain basin to the pancake pan, and then prepare to spread the pancake. Pancakes are also various in eating methods. They can be spread out and eaten now. This is called soft and hot pancakes, "three or five overlapped, roasted and charred. The flavor is crisp and refreshing, and the fragrance is scattered and far away.". This is the written record in pancake Fu written by Pu Songling, a writer in Qing Dynasty. Pancakes can be baked, roasted, distilled and soaked. What people like to eat is the "zegarlic pancake".
In those days, there were almost no fresh vegetables in spring. As soon as spring began, people would go up the slope to open the weir, dig the weir side, and plow the land. A kind of garlic growing in the soil was called zesuan, also known as black garlic, garlic grass and wild garlic. Perennial herbs, fibrous roots tufted, underground bulb thick, purple red film for the outside, flesh white inside, like garlic. It can grow at 0 ℃ and can be harvested in four seasons. It can be eaten in a year and has good nutrition in spring and autumn.
Because of its unique geographical location, zesuan can grow at an altitude of 400 ~ 600 meters. It has beautiful environment, fresh air, no pollution, and unique soil structure. It is a famous wild garlic and pure green natural vegetable.
In the sixties and seventies of last century, when people were ploughing and plowing the land, the size of the pickled garlic exposed on the ground was as big as sour jujube. One or two catties of marsh garlic could be picked up after digging the mountain in the morning. This kind of wild garlic was not as hot as the artificially planted garlic. It was very fresh and tender. It was carried home by hand on the first floor, and then the dry leaves and fibrous roots were picked up one by one , pinch the skin, leaving only small Ze garlic, washed with water, put the Ze garlic on the chopping board and chop into small pieces with a kitchen knife. When chopping Ze garlic, it is easy to fry eyes, often make eyes shed tears. The main process is to mix tofu, vermicelli, Auricularia auricula, shrimp skin, garlic, and then add a small amount of salt and pepper powder. Mix these ingredients well, stir fry peanut oil or oil with low heat, then open the pancake into a folding fan, spread the stuffing evenly, and then set up a triangle. First, add it on the pan or small fry Oil, both sides of each brand, and then fold the long strip, oil in the pot, the two sides into yellow. It is characterized by soft inside and crisp outside, fragrant dishes. It is a kind of economic food with food in one. It is convenient to make, affordable, suitable for all ages. If you drink a bowl of soybean juice and eat two garlic pancakes, it is really a feast for the mouth.
