Baking bread in Ukraine
The baking of home-cooked bread is one of the most important Ukrainian traditions. The real bread with a pleasant smell is baked only in the stove. The process excludes the participation of any joint technology. That’s why the rural bread is considered to be the tastiest and the most useful.
The bread was and is the most important food on the table of Ukrainian people. The bread is present on the table of Ukrainian people at the moment of gladness and at the moment of sorrow, at weekdays and at holydays. Just with this food product the popular beliefs and the national traditions are associated. The respect to bread was brought up from childhood.
The Ukrainian people never throw out the bread. It is regarded as big sin. If the bread fell on the ground accidentally, it is accepted to pick up and kiss it. The Ukrainian hostesses treat with all responsibility the process of baking. People believe that the poor ceremonial bread can provoke the misfortune. The traditions of the baking of bread were passed on from mother to daughter. A special attention was paid to the tidiness of women and to the cleanness of hands.
A typical daily bread was baked from the rye flour and a wide variety of additives such as barley flour, buckwheat, peas, corns, pounded potatoes.
The question appears:”Why do they use exactly a rye bread but not a white bread?” One might think that there were problems with wheat on the territory of our country or it was so expensive. The answer is very simple – Ukrainian people liked more a rye bread. On the South of Ukraine people prefer a white bread.
Nowadays the country people continue to bake bread on the base of the ancient recipes. Only in the village the townsman can regale himself with a tasty and healthy food.
