A Balkan Favorite! Ajvarski Sweet Pepper (3" Container) - Organic

HEIRLOOM. Deep, complex flavor: comparing to a red bell pepper is like comparing New York extra-sharp cheddar to Kraft Singles. These peppers are incredibly fragrant & tasty. When you throw half a dozen on your grill, everybody in your neighborhood will smell them! Roasting is the way to go, as it enhances the flavor. Two-foot, stocky plants are covered in 6- to 7-inch, broadly wedge-shaped pods that ripen green to deep, rich red. 80 days.

A traditional Macedonian roasting pepper, gathered from the villages around Radovis & Strumica. The region is renowned for its peppers, & people from all over Macedonia flock to the markets in fertile valleys there to buy bushels of peppers for making “ajvar.” A paste made from these peppers after roasting, peeling & grinding, nearly every rural household puts up a supply of it for winter eating. Ajvar is usually canned & spread on bread with sirenje, a local cheese similar to feta. This paste is also called "Serbian Salsa" & it includes puréed eggplant, garlic, vinegar & oil. It’s great on fresh bread, toasted bread & crackers, so it’s an easy appetizer recipe to make.
