Ajvar (pronounced EYE-var). Is it a sauce? A dip? A spread? The answer is YES! – and the flavor is delicious! It is also a treasured culinary tradition. In fact, this authentic recipe was developed with the aid and guidance of grandmothers from local Macedonian villages. They shared their knowledge – and you can taste it! Our Roasted Red Pepper Ajvar is sweet but robust. In another variation, the addition of roasted eggplant adds a complex earthy flavor. In both cases, you can choose between a hot version or a mild version. The beauty of this product is its versatility. Ajvar is a flavorful component of so many meals: an accompaniment to grilled meats and kebabs, an instant sauce for lahmajoun (a flatbread with grilled meat), a tasty base for elevating a tofu and rice bowl, or simply as a spread on sandwiches or burgers. Try this flavor packed culinary multi-tasker! Everyone knows you can’t beat a grandmother’s recipe!
