Hi, Binnur
I have a question: sis you post a recipe for pinjur?
I only had it canned, it is a red spread, I believe, mostly from grilled peppers.
Canned stuff tastes very good, but I can imagine, that fresh made will be even better
My Regards

Pinjur and Ajvar
-Pinjur sauce is mashed roasted eggplant, roasted red pepper, garlic, salt and pepper.
