I first heard about "Ayvar" back in the 80s. In those days every company had a practice of giving out "food orders" for the holidays. Already in October we started to wonder if there was a jar of mayonnaise in the set, and maybe green peas would be given? We didn't go hungry, not at all, but a holiday is a holiday, and our "food orders" sometimes contained foods we never dreamed would exist! A smoked sausage or a jar of Bulgarian peach jelly, for example! And it turned out that our main supply manager left on New Year's Eve to take a well-deserved rest, and we knew little about his new successor. But it turned out that the wife of our new "Aladdin" works as the head. gynecology department of the hospital, and using both her and his very extensive connections, our "grocery orders" were awesome! Just awesome! There was a lot of stuff in there! Including Yugoslavian Ayvar.
"Ayvar" was to everyone's liking! I remember that I kept that pretty jar for a long time, the smell lasted a long time! You put your nose in it and it smelled so good! I couldn't make it myself, I didn't know the recipe..
