Moscow villager-fasting liquid
Recipe taken from the book Avdeeva-Polevaya "Cookbook of the experienced Russian housewife". After the first edition in 1842, it was reprinted in pre-revolutionary Russia more than 10 times. The villager differs significantly from our usual soups. From this quantity of products turned out about 4 liters of very thick soup. Avdeeva indicates that the amounts are for 6 servings. I have a book "Russian meal" on Imperial cuisine and national dishes. There are similar recipe villager, indicating that she was served for Breakfast or for lunch before the soup. Loved to eat our ancestors. The cooking time broth, roasting chicken and meat in the recipe is not taken into account.
