So one night a couple months back, Mama gazda asked me if I wanted to help her. At first I said no, stating that I needed to study. After about 10 minutes of studying, I decided studying can wait, and went to help her. She was pitting sour cherries (visine) to make compot.
Compot is a delicious boiled juice juice that many Moldovans make a lot of in 5 litere containers and store in their basement (vech) for during the winter. They also store pickled vegetables and wine down their….we will see how winter goes 😉
Other varieties I have tried include a raspberry/sour cherry mix and a strawberry. Both very delicious, mix with some vodka and you have a dangerous combination 😉
