“This is a versatile recipe that my friend Alexandrina gave to me. I adored this recipe from the first time I tried it. It is a Romanian recipe that she brought back from her homeland. It can be served as an appetizer on crackers, as a lunch on bagette or it can be served with pasta as an evening meal. She makes it at harvest time (August/September) and in a large quantity to freeze for future use. According to her, it isn't quite the same when made in small batches!”
