Sweets with gustito to Volga

Today we present you some options of homemade sweets typically made by the families of German villages in Entre Rios.

Dulces con gustito a Volga

Nothing nicer than what was done by one's  own hands . What better than a bread spread with  flavors  from our  kitchen  ? For snacks and breakfasts, or accompany desserts. Also, they always come well as a gift to those we love the most. Therefore, let's talk about the  sweets  with which  German Volga culture  conquers  entrerriano palates  . They are simple, economical and very practical. So you have to play music, turn on the burners and forget for a while what happens outside. However, its aroma will be as therapeutic as it ravaging hunger. Don't say we didn't let you know.

The  story  tells that, during  every  summer  ,   grandmothers  worked in  production of jellies  to wait for the   winter   . In this way, they put all their efforts to create  fertile orchards  that  gave vegetables and fruits  to be breathless. Likewise, the  dedication  with which they carried out the tasks generated admiration among the locals. It is that, with the heat and sweat of the season, they looked firm next to the wood-burning stoves and stirring huge pans. There, they cooked endless sweets and with varied recipes. In this way, the basements and households were filled with jars with the richest elaborations.

 I don't know which one to stay with 

If you can't decide, there's no problem. Here are  four adaptations  so that you start to encourage culinary creativity. Some are going to look more normal and others more eccentric. Even, it is possible that, when you see a certain name, you will be amazed. Maybe, until today you imagined them in a salad and not in a jam. Everything will depend on the desire you have to explore.  Of course, its exquisiteness is certified .
