The North gingerbreads - an kozyli.

If You under new year will fall into one of our north city, for instance, in Archangelsk then on each step You will get strangely beautiful gingerbreads, are identified they kozyli. Kozylinic (masters fabrications kozyli) plenty of, and beside each its manner painting, as beside persisting artists, and its recipe, sent from generation in generation.
So formed that keeper russian tradition has emerged mans of north. The History these gingerbread is already lost, but ed the legends. Here is one of them.
After russian seafarers have brought on Rusi cinnamon and carnation, masters, having heard about their characteristic long to save the products, become cooking gingerbreads of long keeping. In one kilogram common test of gingerbreads is added spoon of cinnamon and spoon of the carnation, then gingerbreads is kept not less 6 months, but if test to give be persisted, but gingerbreads drying, that and 5 years will lie, only sugar glaze to shower, but here is taste nearly will not change! Endorse these gingerbreads manually. Earlier as dye staffs used juice of the whortleberry, carrot, beets and others But presently use the food dye staffs for cake. Traditionally sliced, basically, figures of animal (the totems). But later name "
kozyli" started to explain so: Sawhorse - a symbol wealth. Any families can afford the contents of the nanny goat (the milk gives all:-), but here is sawhorse was one on the whole village. In russian, the sawhorse sounds as kozyl.
The Sailors took the
kozyli in distant sails - traded them and ated. Kept the gingerbreads in tightly closed basket.
Before appearance on Light brown cinnamon and carnations these gingerbreads too existed, but as preservative were used herbs, rising beside us. The Recipe these gingerbread is lost.
