A delicious pepper spread popular throughout the Balkan countries, ajvar is my favorite food the consume in Macedonia. Spread on bread and served with some Feta cheese, or any one of the many salty, white, creamy cheeses available in the country, this food is truly addictive.

10 pounds of red peppers
1 cup vegetable oil

Remove the seeds from the peppers and broil them until charred. Move them into a bowl and cover with a lid. Allow to steam. This will make it easier to remove the skins.

Peel the peppers and puree in a food processor. 

Add the peppers and the oil into a pot, add 1 tsp salt. Cook, stirring until it thickens and it appears done.

Scoop into jars and seal. Store refrigerated until eaten.
