Ajvar

Ajvar

Different and yet the same… That’s how we are in the Balkans, especially when it comes to national cuisine. And because we value both the similarities and the differences between the Balkan countries, we decided to offer you a favorite traditional Balkan recipe, widely spread in Macedonia and Serbia – ajvar.

Ajvar reminds of the Bulgarian lyutenitsa spread, though there is one main difference. To prepare ajvar instead of red tomatoes you must use eggplant. If you still can’t quite imagine it, there’s one great way to feel the difference – just try it!

What's in it

Roasted organic red peppers and eggplants, seasoned with organic sunflower oil, himalayan salt, organic unrefined cane sugar.

How's it made

We pick only red peppers and eggplants that are grown naturally. We do that because when left to grow for as much time they need and when collected ripe and ready, that helps to preserve their rich taste and aroma. We season the vegetables with organic sunflower oil, himalayan salt and organic unrefined cane sugar. And because our ajvar is made entirely of natural ingredients, it has a natural thickness and density and doesn’t need any thickening additives.

Ajvar is a specialty and it’s a great choice for a cold appetizer. Even though traditionally it was made for the upcoming winter season, nowadays it’s suitable for all times of the year and it goes with all kinds of dishes. It’s great spread on a toast and it’s simply irresistible with a little bit of goat or cow cheese on top.
