"Crossing" Back in ancient times, what can you eat every day?

Ancient Chinese people ate only 2 meals a day. The first meal was around 9 am, called "Chao Food", and the second was around 4 pm.Many people have developed the habit of eating another meal after night. This meal is the "supper" we often say. To understand their three meals, let’s see what they eat.

Our ancestors make a living by hunting, but unfortunately, they can only grill the cooking method;

With the invention of the pottery, with the earliest cooking (rice and millet), as for other non -staple food, it is completely listening to the state of life;

The dishes are slightly richer, and they are often eaten as "Grand Valley" and "Five dishes". Perhaps they can also stew and drink milk;

"Gut Valley" is: rice, tadpoles, tadpoles, wheat, 菽 [shū], probably the rice, yellow rice, millet, wheat, soybean, etc. we are familiar with today.

"Five dishes" are: sunflowers, Hu (huò), 薤 (xiè), shallots, and chives, which are Dongwin Kwa (also said that it is okra), bean seedlings, wild garlic, green onions, leeks.

However, the food output is still not high, and the meat is slightly richer than the staple food.Whether it is vegetables or meat, it is basically boiled, or all put together to make a hodgepodge together, which is the "pupa" that the ancients said.

The main method is to stew and cook, similar to the practice of our preserved egg and lean porridge. The nobles can eat meat, and ordinary people can only eat vegetables. Because there is no seasoning at the time, the method is relatively rough, so basically talk about it.It’s not delicious or delicious, it can only be said to be full.

The main foods are still rice, beans, and corn porridge.This era has appeared (huò, the prototype of the pot).This thing is mainly used for stewing. At that time, the cooking methods were boiled or baked.

The Han Dynasty was very popular in the Han Dynasty.When barbecue, the grilled side should be cut off quickly, and then baked. In this way, the food that is "cooked" is "smooth and beautiful".This meets our highest requirements for barbecue today: cooked, but still tender.Seasoning salt is an official selling, and the sale of private salt must be killed or even the nine tribe.At that time, the seasonings and spices were very small, and the taste made is not delicious;

Later, Zhang Jian brought back cucumber, grapes, pomegranate, garlic, etc., but did not flow into the people on a large scale.

Special reminder, friends who like to eat beef should pay attention!If you eat beef during the Qin and Han dynasties, you may kill the penalty!

The original wheat, like other grains, made wheat rice through cooking, but the wheat shell is really rough. Later, a foodie was put on the stone to grind it.Powder, this is also the earliest flour.At the same time, lentils, eggplants and lettuce came from the Western Regions, which enriched the types of ingredients.

Rice has begun to grow widely, and ordinary people have achieved "free rice". At that time, the meat was mainly lamb, and spinach in vegetables was introduced from Nepal to China. With the progress of wheat technology, ordinary families could almost eat noodles.Waiting for pasta, but the taste is relatively rough, usually with beans and wild vegetables.

For the sweet party, sugar is gradually moving towards the people.The sugar workshop of the Tang Dynasty will make a variety of delicate sweets. Whenever there are "explosive models", Changan and Luoyang’s "fashionistas" will buy it out.The sucrose is coward, the rock sugar and walnut kernels and pine nuts are made into frosting cakes. They can also be made with green plums, orange cakes, and osmanthus.There is also a kind of cold dessert called "Crispy Mountain". It heated the "crispy" (cheese), dripped in the utensils to make the shape of a mountain, and then frozen in the ice cellar.The ice cream is the same.

The biggest change in the food industry is the appearance of iron pots, which has gradually become the mainstream. The ancients finally bid farewell to the fate of eating water and cooking vegetables.Different pastries appear.In short, in the Song Dynasty, you can eat stir -fried, soup, fried products and pastries, and food began to really eat to a delicious stage.

In the early days, there was basically no contribution, but peppers were introduced to China in the late Ming Dynasty.The first way is to pass through the land Silk Road, and then cultivate in Gan, Shaanxi and other places.When the pepper was introduced, it was mainly used for viewing, and later it was made by flowers, and then the vegetables were used as a seasoning.Prior to this, Chinese spicy condiments were mainly ginger, pepper, pepper, etc.After the pepper is introduced, the "protagonist" gradually assumed the spicy flavor,

In the late Ming Dynasty, corn, potatoes, sweet potatoes, carrots, carrots, peanuts, tomatoes, pineapple, bean horns, etc., but these ingredients are still precious, and ordinary people are still difficult to eat.

A food that changes the destiny of the Chinese is potatoes!With the high yield of potatoes, most people’s eating problems have been solved, leading to a substantial growth of the population.The difference between the diet of the Qing Dynasty and the modernity is not very large. Take the Emperor Qing of the Qing Dynasty. For example, the Qing Dynasty emperor was particularly luxurious in eating. You need to eat 100 dishes for a meal.Come here.

Starting from the stage of fullness and deliciousness, it has begun to transition to the stage of nutrition and health;

What fruits can the ancients eat?

The fruits that the ancients can eat are very limited, because many fruits are not produced in the native, but are introduced in exotic:

Pear has three main origins, including the Caucasus Mountains in China, Asia Minor to the Middle East and Central Asia.It should be known that the output of Chinese pears accounted for 70%of the world’s share.

Jujube (red dates) are native to China. There are currently more than 8,000 years of cultivation history, with more than 400 varieties.The jujube tree was first spread to other parts of Asia, and was later introduced to Europe and the United States.

In traditional Chinese culture, red dates are nourishing sacred products, which are often used to make medicated diet or directly admitted to medicine.

There are several ways to say about the origin of sugarcane. One of them is originally from New Guinea or India, and it was introduced to the local area through the Zhou Dynasty of the Zhou Dynasty.

Another saying is that China is one of the origin, because at the end of the 4th century BC, China had "柘", and "柘" was later generated into "sugar sugar", and the name of sugar cane conforms to the habit of Chinese independent domestication plants.It did not add "Hu", "Fan", "foreign" or foreign place names, nor did he adopt a transliteration method.
