When I read queries in which the poster says: I bought X and I have no idea what it is or how to use it or what to do with it." I always think, that's weird, why would anyone buy anything if they don't know what it is or how to cook with it?
However, I revently did just the same thing. I saw this jar of red pasty stuff labeled Avjar. Only the ingredients are in English on a special label, but the rest of the label seem to be in an Eastern European/Balkan language. According to the label, It mostly contains roasted red peppers and vegetables. It tastes pretty good and is not vinegary. I read the wiki about it and it seems to be a Balkan chile pepper vegetable preserve.
So far I have stirred the avjar paste into two different types of soup to make the soup roasted red pepper flavored.
What else can I use this for? What are it's traditional uses?
