Nakon čitanja posta, kojim nam je
Studena obratila pažnju na humanitarnu akciju blogera koja je u toku, razmišljala sam na koji način bi mogla dati makar mali doprinos. Jedna od mogućnosti je prilaganje recepta za knjigu recepata od čije će prodaje sav prihod ići u svrhu pomoći gladnoj djeci. Bila bih ponosna da i moj recept uđd u knjigu, a ako ne, knjigu ću svakako kupiti kada izađe iz štampe i barem na taj način dati i svoj doprinos.
Ovo je tekst recepta koji prilažem...
Hurmasice are one of favourite Bosnian sweet pastry. A legacy of Ottoman Empire in Bosnian cooking, these little pastry soaked in rich syrup are great sweet treat for anyone with sweet tooth.
Dough and syrup are made with apple juice molasses which is considered as a healthy substitution for sugar. To make a fruit molasses, the juice is first extracted from fruit before it is boiled and reduced to create dark syrup called pekmez. Pekmez is slightly tart and gives sweets special flavour.
