Σουτζούκου – Soutzoukos, is quite delicious although it may take a little time to acquire the taste. Made from grape juice and flour with some added flavouring, followed by dipping strung nuts and hanging to dry several times to allow a build up of the soutsoukkos mixture around the nuts. Gorgeous! Traditionally sliced up (after cooling and once the string has been removed) then stored and used as a sweet over the winter. I keep mine in sealed plastic container in the fridge…
Τραχανά (Trachanas) – hmmmm, not for the faint hearted. Definitely not one of my favourites. Once tasted, never forgotten and certainly not to be tried agan. Made from all things white: semolina, flour, milk, yoghurt plus some eggs, wheat and maybe even some mouldy halloumi.
Χαλλούμι (Halloumi) – “squeaky cheese” everybody’s favourite. It’s fabulous served grilled either alone or with some fresh salad in pitta and preferably with some grilled lountza!
That’s your lot for today, enjoy!
