Before this, the fruits are washed, dried with a towel, cut in half, and seeds are removed. Sometimes the peppers are baked whole, and the stems and seeds are removed after. Eggplants, if they are part of the dish, are also baked whole or cut into halves. Before this, "blue ones" will not prevent soak in salted water to remove solanine, which gives them bitterness. Some modern recipes allow you to abandon the roasting of vegetables, providing for other ways of their heat treatment.

How to eat aivar?

Aivar is an excellent product for sandwiches, a base for multi-storey sandwiches, an addition to hot dishes (served in a separate small container), as well as added to scrambled eggs and Serbian “Ser” dishes, and to cold snacks made in a variety of rolls, etc.

Sometimes I love to eat ayvar just like “salty ice cream” - from a vase with a spoon, without anything. Aivar without the addition of spicy paprika is called blagi (good - good) ayvar, and with the addition of the last - ljuti(Uti - fierce) ayvar.

Thank you for your attention and - a good aivar! I have been using this recipe for ayvara for 4 years. Neighbors and friends say that it turns out exactly what you need. 🙂

The most important thing is pepper!

The recipe for ayvara is not one; its culinary world knows many variations. But they are all united by one characteristic: they contain Bulgarian pepper. And you need to prepare it for entry into the dish according to all the rules. To do this, all selected for cooking pepper wash, laid out on a baking sheet and sent to the oven. The mode must be set “hard”, however, you should watch the process so that the vegetable does not turn into embers. And at least once the pods need to be turned! On average, baking takes a third of an hour.

Continue processing

The next tedious, but necessary step is the removal of peel from pepper. To make it less sticky, you can use a sleeve for baking. Or drench the vegetables with cold water immediately after removing them from the oven. Only after the “outcrop” can you get seeds from the pod and grind it under a hot sauce.

By the way, if there are any problems with the oven, you can fry the peppers (dry and covered) or use the slow cooker in baking mode and, again, without oil.

Aivar for the winter: "modest" version

That is - with a minimum of ingredients. In any case, according to the authors of the recipe. In the Serbian sauce aivar includes only sweet pepper, which we have already described, tomatoes, onions, hot pods and some additives. The main components - tomatoes and peppers - "Bulgarian" - are taken in equal quantities. For example, 2.5 pounds each. In this case, onions will need a kilogram, garlic - a head (medium-sized), and something sharp, a “light” or chili - eight pods.

Cooking is easy!

First tomatoes are ground, then sweet peppers are prepared, followed by onions. Garlic chokes in any way that suits you and is added to the total mass. All the good is folded into a large container and placed on the stove. Tomit ayvar recipe advises about a third of an hour, after which the vegetable oil is poured. On average, it takes ten spoons. And the total cooking time can take from an hour to two - it will depend on the volume that you swung. Под самый конец добавляются соль, сахар и горчица. Ориентироваться следует на свои предпочтения. В первый раз можно попробовать стандартные пропорции: четыре ложечки соли, пять больших – сахара и две кофейных – горчицы.

Рецепт айвара по-сербски позволяет хранить соус год, а возможно, и дольше (просто обычно приправа съедается значительно быстрее). If you want to stretch the pleasure, you need to sterilize the storage container of the aivar and the lid for the closure in any way that is convenient for you, arrange the sauce in hot jars, roll it up and cool it in the upside-down position. But you can store it anywhere, the cellar is not required. Unless the top of kitchen cabinets, where the heat from the stove rises constantly, will not be the most suitable place.

Eggplant option

Another aivar, the recipe of which is no less popular than the one already described. The main difference is the addition of the list of ingredients eggplants. They take half the rate of the weight of bell peppers. And do with the little blue should be the same. That is, send in the oven along with the main component. Before baking, eggplants need to be pounded from all sides (a fork or a toothpick will do for this purpose). This version of hot sauce will be tastier if hot peppers (half a pod per kilo of sweet, but no one forbids taking more) with onions and garlic will undergo a roasting procedure in a frying pan with vegetable oil.

Next, baked eggplants are cleaned and chopped into the smallest cubes, supplemented with roasting and added with salt (two spoons without a slide), sugar (twice as much), can be spiced with herbs and ground pepper. Chopped peppers are almost completely homogenous and wine vinegar is poured in here (red is better, calculation is a spoonful of liquid per pound of mass).

In fact, this aivar sauce is intended for use in the near future. If you want to save it before the winter holidays, put it in hot sterilized jars, close it and keep it cool until hour X.

Superear Aivar: Serbian Recipe

This option is not suitable for people who are unaccustomed to the burning sensation. Or they can use "caviar" in very limited quantities. Just because it does not use sweet peppers, and hot. Moreover, the sauce requires that the longest, oblong and extremely hot variety, from which one smell watery eyes. And the pods will need a whole kilogram - despite the fact that “softening” tomatoes will go only half a kilo to it. On the other hand, the sharpness will not increase with garlic and onions (they take only two heads according to the recipe).

Since here we are not talking about sweet pepper, then it will not be necessary to bake it (a unique recipe in a series of others). All vegetables are cleaned (and the gloves will not be superfluous, in any case, when “gutting” hot pepper), interrupted in a blender and put in a saucepan with a thick bottom. In order to avoid burning and to add three olive oil spoons to the mass of ajvar of a Mediterranean note, you can add spoons to the mass. From the moment of boiling this yummy on the fire will have to torment for about forty minutes, and with regular stirring, so be patient. Ten minutes before readiness, you will need to pour vinegar into the sauce, and either balsamic or wine white. Hot ayvar is poured into jars, screwed or corked - and stored without refrigerators and cellars. He is so keen that he becomes his own preservative.

By the way. If in your household white with balsamic vinegars are rare guests, use lime juice. The effect is the same, maybe the taste will become even more interesting and piquant, even if it turns out to be less pronounced.

Experiments are welcome.

The recipe for the winter quince is very variable. However, like most culinary delights. You can all the vegetables from the list that caused your sympathy, just cut into cubes (preferably small), add salt, spice up the spices and bake in the oven until a pleasant crust. Turning over is a must! Launched juices will be enough to form the desired consistency. And if it seems that they are not enough, and the sauce will come out too thick, you can always supplement it with tomato juice with interesting additions. And not only tomato, by the way - there are lots of interesting options. Such a “stew” can be rolled up in jars - and it will be quite a full-fledged ayvar. And do not be afraid to experiment with a variety of fragrant herbs and spices. In the end, it is they who “make” the taste, it is they who are able to create a true culinary masterpiece from any primitive. So you have every chance to thunder in the cooking environment as a real genius, if you can make a good composition of seasonings.

So try your luck, put experiments, do not be afraid to take risks! Someday, for a jar with your version of the aivara, the gourmet will be ready to give everything he has, including his soul!

Cooking process

Aivar is a popular dish of Balkan cuisine. At its core, it is a very thick paste / caviar from baked or roasted pepper. Depending on the regional characteristics and preferences of the culinary specialist, the dish can be prepared both on the basis of only sweet bell pepper, and with the addition of other vegetables - most often eggplants or tomatoes.

Extremely simple and unpretentious in cooking, aivar sauce is not capricious in terms of storage conditions, due to which it has gained great popularity not only as a seasonal snack, but also as a preparation for the winter.

With a rather modest set of components and a minimum amount of spices in the composition, the dish turns out to be incredibly fragrant and tasty! Its delicate creamy texture, seductive aroma and taste with smoky notes conquer from the first piece. Ready ayvar can be served as an independent snack / caviar, and as a sauce for meat dishes and side dishes, as well as added to soups, gravy and stews as a seasoning, and, of course, the easiest option is to make delicious sandwiches! Try it!

Prepare the ingredients on the list.

Today we prepare ayvar from baked pepper with eggplants. Such an addition does not particularly affect the taste, but pleasantly increases the total volume of the snack. For comparison: out of 2 kilograms of Bulgarian pepper, I get about 800 grams of well boiled, thick ayvar (billet for the winter). Adding 1 kg of eggplants - I get 1 liter of billet for the winter and another 250-300 grams is left for sandwiches. Aivara, who is planning to eat right away, will get a little more - you can not boil it down much.

Eggplants and peppers (sweet and spicy), place in an oven preheated to 200 degrees and bake for 25-30 minutes, until soft and dark ocher appear. In the process, turn the pepper several times so that the frying takes place evenly.

You can also bake vegetables on charcoal. The lightly burnt skin of pepper and the aroma of a fire give the finished snack an incredibly delicious smoky flavor.

Put the baked pepper in a sealed bag and leave for another 10-15 minutes - so the skin will be easy to clean. Eggplants slightly cool and separate the flesh from the skin.

Also peel the hot peppers and remove the seeds. For a spicy snack, add 2-3 hot peppers. I add 1 hot pepper - the snack turns out to be moderately spicy.

Peel the peppers by removing peels and seeds. Drop the pepper into a sieve to remove all the juice. If time allows, you can leave the pepper in a sieve for several hours or overnight by placing it in the fridge.

The more juice you manage to separate at this stage, the less time it will take to boil down ayvar. Further preparation of the dish, in fact, is aimed at evaporation of excess liquid to obtain a thick consistency of aivar. Separating the maximum liquid at once, we simplify our further work and reduce the cooking time.

Prepared vegetables very finely chop with a knife.

Or grind in a blender.

Fry the onions in a pan until golden brown. Then add the chopped garlic and fry all together for another 1 minute.

Combine the prepared mixture of baked vegetables, toasted onions and garlic, vegetable oil. Add a few pinch of salt, ground black pepper, a pinch of sugar and, while stirring, bring to a boil. Try ayvar and add more spices to taste.

Boil the ayvar should be constantly stirring until the mixture thickens so that the spoon will stand and the mixture will begin to lag behind the walls of the pan. If you hold a spoon on the bottom of the pan - the trace of it should be fully tightened in five seconds. Usually the cooking process in this case takes from 20 to 40 minutes. If you plan to eat aivar immediately, you can boil down aivar for a shorter amount of time, 10-15 minutes.

For the preparation of an aivar for the winter, 5 minutes before readiness, pour 4-5 tbsp into the pan. wine or apple vinegar (adjust the amount to taste). For short storage, you can not add vinegar, replace it with lemon juice or add quite a bit to taste. Ready ayvar poured into sterilized jars and roll up.

Aivar is ready! Enjoy your meal!

You can store an aivar without rolling it up - for example, pour it over sterilized cans, pour in a small amount of vegetable oil, seal it tightly and store it in a refrigerator or simply freeze it in portions. Even in conditions of subzero temperature, he will not lose his taste.

Recipe "Aivar":

Aivar is a Serbian national dish,
nicknamed "the black caviar of the poor",
ideal for grilled meat and kebab!
This word is pronounced with emphasis on the first letter, Ai-var,
which means "namaz" - in Russian about the same:
NAMAZ - that spread on a piece of bread!

Over the past years, I have repeatedly prepared Aivar.
I know even 4 cooking recipes!
Cooked each. And everyone is tasty.
Now, with the presence of a combine or grinder in almost every kitchen, the preparation of “Aivar” takes very little time, but earlier, on the usual “meat roll” - it was necessary to sweat!
But, to the point.

For the preparation of "Aivar" need pepper.
You can take the usual Bulgarian, but it is sweet and in the recipe will only imitate "Aivar",
You need to find this:

This is a long and spicy pepper. For stuffing it is not suitable.
When preparing it, be careful: your hands are burning!
And do not touch the mucous membrane of the mouth or eyes (especially the nose)!

Recipe 1: Aivar with Tomatoes
It is necessary (strictly by weight):
1 kg of pepper
0.5 kg tomatoes
0,150 g onion
0.025 g garlic
50 ml of sunflower oil
2 tablespoons (no slides) salt
4 tablespoons of granulated sugar
1 tablespoon of table vinegar

Wash everything thoroughly, remove the core from the peppers, let it drain (dry) and scroll the vegetables in a meat grinder.

Then cook over high heat for 30 minutes CONSTANTLY MIXING.
First, “Aivar” is boiled, then the liquid begins to boil, then it remains low, but when it is almost gone, remove it from the fire. Look carefully at the photo, I tried to show it.

10 minutes before the end of cooking add vinegar, then shift to jars. Sterilization is not needed. The output of this recipe is exactly 1 liter. If more, then “Aivar” is cooked incorrectly (undercooked). In a properly boiled "Aivar" spoon should stand!

Recipe 2: "Aivar" with eggplants
It is necessary (strictly by weight):
1 kg of pepper
0.5 kg eggplant
0,150 g onion
0.025 g garlic
50 ml of sunflower oil
2 tablespoons (no slides) salt
4 tablespoons of granulated sugar
1 tablespoon of table vinegar

We are doing everything exactly the same, but I draw your attention to the following: eggplants are not tomatoes, they will not give juice.

Therefore, the cooking time is shorter than 10 minutes, and the output is more than 200 grams.

Vinegar I Used

If you have not found such a pepper for sale, take a regular Bulgarian, but you will need to add hot chili peppers. You can scroll it along with the seeds, then it will be very hot, but if without seeds, the taste is softer.

Recipe 3: "Aivar" with apples
For 2 kg of pepper: 1 kg of tomatoes and 1 kg of apples (without skin), increase the amount of other spices slightly.
Recipe 4: "Aivar" - a mixture.
For 2 kg of pepper: 1 kg of eggplant and 1 kg of apples (all the same).

From the photo you can see how "Aivar" differs from one another.
Girls! I advise you to cook "Aivar". Very tasty snack and "Mazalka"! Sharp! To the meat is the thing! If you add "Aivar" to rice, then you get dyuvech rice - a popular Balkan dish (from the old magazine "Yugoslavia" for the 1985th year, so about). I also add to different sauces (especially good for pasta!).

And yet: in the winter with “Aivar”, you can make a very tasty snack: mix it with rustic (coarse-grained) cottage cheese. In addition, you can add to meat dishes when stewing. It gives the meat some sharpness (light piquancy!) And a very beautiful color.

Storage: you can store it without rolling it up, just put it in small jars and pour sunflower oil on top (so that there is a thin oil film). You can freeze, the taste does not change.

I read the recipe and the description of the pepper completely confused me. Please specify which pepper is needed for this recipe. I'd like to make this seasoning.
Black (?!) Is written in the recipe, then "spicy", then - Bulgarian with the addition of chili. Understood nothing.

Maybe you had in mind the mild hot pepper varieties (pickled ones) or paprika pepper varieties?
