Τhe...daily bread

Bread
   Because there was no barm at that time, people used chickpea, the “kratouni”. They crumbled and soaked them in water from the night. In the morning there has been created a rich spume. They kneaded them with some flour and they were making yeast. Adding it in the leaven they kneaded the bread. Instead of the today’s pans they were having baskets. By putting a towel, then they were placing a quantity of leaven, they covered it and they were leaving it to swell.
They were preheating the oven, by burning wood and brushwood. They were closing the oven with a big slab and they were putting ashes in the fissures. The results were big tasty loaves.

Βutter
  The kid or the cow’s milk makes a crust if you leave it for a while. By gathering it and collecting a sufficient quantity they were boiling it. Then they were leaving it to get cool enough. In this way they were making a tasty butter.

Cheese
   They used rennet of cheese, in small quantity, in the milk and they were leaving it for one day. Then they were soaking the mix in a bag from stuff and there was the whey being left. They were also leaving it to soak for half a day. In the end after they were trussing up the bag, they were placing it under a rock. The result was the “Analati”.
If they wanted to make small cheese, they were grinding the Analati, they were putting salt and they were making small balls. They were hanging the balls in “jaconets” and then they were spreading them for a few days. When the balls were dried they were placing them again under a rock. In this way they were making small, salted cheese.

Dried tomatoes
   They were chopping the tomatoes in half and they were powedering with a teaspoon sugar. They were spreading them and after a few days, when they were dried enough, they were storing them.
When, in the winter, they wanted to consume them they were boiling them and then frying them.

Filled figs

Tradition was created through the generations, from the survival of the material poverty of people and earth.
Today responsible is our optic. In the cities there is no tradition. Everything is in the light of science, and experts.
The recording of tradition in some pages is not the substance, but what is important is its evolution.
So I don’t want to record the tradition, I just want to make it known to you.
