Ajvar – Roasted Red Pepper Spread

The legendary Balkan delicacy.
Red peppers fire roasted, hand peeled and then slow cooked with a little oil.

Granny’s Secret celebrates the deep red bell pepper variety grown only in the small Kopaonik region of south-eastern Serbia.

Taste Ajvar and you are transported to the heart of the Serbian countryside with field upon field of red pepper stretching across the hills. Harvest is a family affair where peppers are handpicked, smoked, peeled, and cooked to perfection. The sights, sounds, and smells of harvest and the preparation for the winter ahead echo back over the generations in a timeless rhythm of work and harmony. 

Ajvar is simply and naturally made with only four ingredients using low-temperature pasteurisation. A long shelf life is achieved naturally by lengthy slow cooking by skilled cooks. We do not add preservatives, additives, artificial colouring or flavours. As tradition demands, our Granny’s Secret Ajvar is all-natural.
