Net weight: 200gr
Packaging: Very practical, which keeps the contents fresh and allows you to open & close it multiple times.
Identity: The name boukovo describes, in most Balkan countries, the dried and grated flesh, along with the seeds, of various varieties of pepper of the genus Capsicum annuum, some of which are slightly to not at all hot and others may reach the intensity of a cayenne pepper. The origin of the name is probably connected with the homonymous village between Florina and the Monastery, which is now on the side of FYROM, as its inhabitants were considered great pepper growers and the first to trade the seasoning from its dried fruits. Bukovo is especially popular in northern Greece, where it was for many decades the "pepper of the poor", replacing the very expensive black pepper. Depending on the variety or varieties of pepper to be used or the mixing to be done, it can be sweet, medium or very hot.
Shape: Deep purple "scales" of the flesh and orange spores, in an impressive color combination.
Aromas and taste: The fruity aroma of pepper, with minimal smoky notes, dominates the nose. In the mouth it is mild, without a trace of burning, with discreet acidity and rich fruit.
In the kitchen: Adds aroma and color to soups, legumes, grilled meats, spice mixes and marinades. If you like mild flavors, use it to flavor oils and pickles or make "your own" garlic sauce.
Matches: It goes well with dried herbs such as oregano, thyme and marjoram, but also with fresh herbs and pepper.
