Balkan Red Vegetable Spread

Jim Leff | Oct 15, 2002 06:53 PM

What's the red jarred spread (mostly peppers, sometimes hot sometimes not) that all the Bosnians, Serbians, and Bulgarians smear on everything? You see it stacked up in huge pyramids in every Balkan food store. I'm spacing on the name, it's driving me crazy. It's called "oooooooove" or something.

While we're at it, does anyone have a favorite brand? Or are they all (as I suspect) exactly the same - a commodity, like millet or soybeans?
