Qingzhou Hexing Food Co., Ltd. specializes in: persimmons, hawthorn cakes, dried taro. Autumn is the harvest season. All kinds of vegetables and fruits are dazzling, and the climate is dry. In autumn, people like to eat more fruits to replenish moisture, and which kind of fruit is right for them? What we're going to talk about today is: hawthorn. This season is also the season when hawthorn is on the market. Hawthorn is a nutritious food that is very suitable for eating in autumn. “Daily Materia Medica”: Decomposes food accumulation, relieves gas, strengthens the stomach, relieves blood and gas masses. Hawthorn is warm and slightly acidic, and can enter the spleen, stomach, and liver menstruation. The benefits of hawthorn were recorded in many ancient medical monographs, and “Tang Materia Medica” also recorded that hawthorn was sour, cold, and non-toxic. The calcium content of hawthorn is high in autumn fruits, with 52 mg of calcium per hundred grams of pulp. Traditional Chinese medicine believes that the accumulation, stagnation, and exercise of hawthorn can lift the stomach. In particular, hawthorn is rich in calcium, vitamin C, vitamin E, and lipidase synchronized with stomach acid. After entering the stomach, it can enhance the effect of pepsin and promote calcium absorption. Hawthorn has strong processability, which is rare among many fruits, and its product market is also very broad. The reason why hawthorn can form such a rich processed product, in addition to its special flavor and nutrition, is mainly closely related to certain special ingredients and their content in its fruit. The reason why it is rich in pectin is that it is rich in hawthorn fruits, ten to tens of times that of other fruits. The abundance of pectin determines the unique processing properties and unique processed products of hawthorn, so that its processed products are colorful. Another hawthorn snack that is relatively simple to make is dried hawthorn slices. This kind of hawthorn slice does not break the hawthorn, but removes the core from the hawthorn, then slices the hawthorn, marinates it in sugar, puts it on for a while, and then exposes it to dry hawthorn slices. It is sweet and sour and chewy. Of course, you can choose not to be exposed to the sun after pickling, or you can eat it directly as a pickled fruit. When I was a kid for the Spring Festival, every household would prepare New Year's goods, and snacks such as hawthorn slices were also among them. Although it looks simple and is not comparable to those colorful snacks, its production process is complicated. From material selection, to cleaning and steaming, then breaking into sauce, to compression molding, drying, and packaging, it can be considered a real hawthorn slice. However, it's okay to eat a few slices of hawthorn like this. If you eat too much, you will feel dental acid. It can be said that it is a very natural green snack.
