I bought a jar of "ajvar". The ingredients looked really good and it tastes really good. But I have no idea where the stuff originated--the label says it's made in Bulgaria, yet I'm not sure it's a Bulgarian thing.
It's made with sweet peppers, eggplant, garlic and hot peppers (though I couldn't taste the hot). I mixed in some parmesan cheese and sambal oelek and it's a perfect dip for crackers. There are more sweet (but flavorful) peppers in it than anything else.
It is imported by Indo-European company, with an almost-German brand "Zer Gut" (imagine an umlaut on the U).
Whatever it is, it's good. I'm just curious if it's German, Indian, Bulgarian, or what. I bought it in a store that sells mostly Indian and middle-eastern food.
