Casa Verde Note: A big pepper with fantastic taste and flavor. Medium-walled can be productive if handled right. If productive, then make sure to throw half a dozen on the grill and make a traditional relish called ajvar, which is eaten spread on bread, often with sirenje, a local cheese similar to feta.

Celebrated for their beguiling aroma and delicious taste, Ajvarski peppers are a beloved staple in North Macedonian cuisine. Roasting these thick-fleshed traditional peppers on flat metal stoves brings friends together to share the expectation of an unforgettable meal! After they’re peeled, they are ground into something special: ajvar, an irresistibly savory relish that is eaten spread on bread alongside sirenje (similar to feta). As autumn draws near each year, locals flood markets around fertile valleys in the east, searching for bushels of this coveted veggie so that they can stock up at home with enough supplies to last through winter.
