First ‘Ajvar’ Festival Held in Lipik

Croatia

 

The first ever ‘Ajvar Festival’ has been held in the western Slavonian town of Lipik…

Organised by Lipik Town Council and the Lipik Tourist Board, the first ‘Ajvar Festival’ saw 14 teams prepare the popular relish based on a variety of different recipes. Festival organiser Anita Jurković told HRT that the idea for the festival was spontaneous as there was nothing similar going on in the area.

The winning jar of ajvar sold at an auction during the festival for 400 kuna.

Original homemade ajvar is made of roasted peppers. Depending on the capsaicin content in bell peppers and the amount of added chili peppers, it can be sweet (traditional), piquant (the most common), or very hot. Ajvar can be consumed with meat, as a bread spread or as a side dish.
