  • Interesting for the tomato spread (Lutenitsa)!

    Lutenitsa ( information from Wikipedia). Ljutenica, lyutenitsa or lutenitsa (Serbian: љутеница, Bulgarian: лютеница, Macedonian: лутеница; lyuto or luto meaning "hot") is a spicy vegetable relish or chutney in Bulgarian, Macedonian and Serbian cuisines. The ingredients include peppers, carrots, eggplant, onion, garlic, black pepper, vegetable oil, sugar, and salt, and tomatoes. It comes in many varieties: smooth; with bits; with extra tomatoes, peppers or eggplant; and spicy or mild. Ljutenica or tomato spread may be slightly spicier than the other popular relish, ajvar. However, different regions and countries have substantially different interpretations of these relishes. Traditional Bulgarian lyutenitsa is less hot than ajvar. In Bulgaria, lyutenitsa (tomato spread) comes in a jar and is often used as a spread on toast and breads. It is also frequently eaten with many meats, meatballs and kebapcheta. Most households have this in their house all year. In recent years, industrial production of ljutenica, as well as ajvar, has flourished. Large-scale production of both relishes has popularized them outside the Balkans. 

  • Who is Tomato spread (Lutenitsa) Parvomay ?

    For decades, the grandmothers of Parvomay city, Bulgaria  followed a local ritual with which they were famous in the neighborhood. As the first tomatoes ripen and the first peppers in the gardens turn red, they picked them up and started the "race" - who will first mix the best tomato spread (lutenitsa) and fill the largest jars. They believed that the first ripe fruit had the most useful vitamins, so they put them in jars, so that when the winter came the whole family would eat and treat them with illnesses. And in a small jar, they closed the local specialty - kids  tomato spread (lutenitsa), in which they added carrots and apples to make children healthier and have more energy for games. The aroma of freshly cooked tomatoes and peppers in the outskirts, and the people around him trying to do so - took the recipe, did everything according to the prescriptions of the first-moms, but they still did not get a delicious lute. The first-mums are not wide-eyed people, they have begun to invite them to their ritual, to make the other chefs that they get. So it happened. And the glory of the first-mums as masters of the lute, and their city - as a magical place, where only the delicious lutenitsa closes. People from near and far, from unknown and unknown places, began to crowd around and close the  tomato spread (lutenitsa) in Parvomay. More and more became - some came for a short while while they closed their jars, and others who could not without the jellyfish all year round - began to settle in Parvomay. But the city was getting worse, there would be no room for newcomers soon. And first-moms, hospitable people, decided not to let things go. The mayor, the priest and the teacher decided to decide what to do. Because they did not want to expel the people or send the people to come, they decided: the first-moms will make the lute and send it to everyone who wants to eat it. Okay, but those lasts are getting more and more. The old cauldrons did not come out of the fire, the grandmothers did not stop picking up and grinding the produce. It occurred to a young man who had recently been taken from a gurbet and said to the mayor: "The grandmothers are not going to work, I will make a factory here!". "You will be wiping out our city," the mayor said, "our tradition holds us all, we have inherited our ancestors and we want to give it to our children." So he set him a condition - to keep the tradition without which Parvomay would not be the same.

    Then, in 1939, a factory was built in Parvomay and changed the appearance of the place. But your custom remains. When the first tomatoes were ripened and the first peppers became - the factory began to work, produce and close the delicious chef, which everyone loved and waited for a whole year. And so to our day. Only the name changed. First it was "Vitex", then "Partizanin" and "Bulcons", as it is known to this day. And the production became more and more, first-mums were specialized in the production of appetizers, tomato paste, roasted peppers and pickles. The address is still in Parvomay,Bulgaria  - on 1 Malina Street
