How to cook urbech
Classic urbech is a thick oily mass, which is obtained by simply grinding various seeds and nuts. The main nuance is that initially the seeds can be dried or even fried, but the healthiest and most useful way is to prepare urbech from raw products, then all useful substances are preserved in it.
So, the seeds of flax, sunflower, hemp, apricot kernels, peanuts, almonds (together or separately) are ground on stone millstones until oil is obtained, which, having barely stood out, again impregnates what it was squeezed out of. So it turns out a thick mass, called urbech.
Why are stone millstones still used today? Yes, because when using them, the friction temperature does not exceed 40 degrees, the seeds and kernels do not turn into powder, but they secrete oil, in which, due to the low temperature, all useful substances are preserved.
Urbech contains vitamins C and B, polysaccharides, proteins, fiber. Almost any seeds or nuts are used to prepare urbech: flax, poppy, sesame, hemp, sunflower, pumpkin seeds, peanuts, cashews, almonds, hazelnuts, walnuts, and so on.
