Tsamarella is a very popular traditional meat delicacy. It is made of large pieces of goat meat slit with a sharp knife and salted. The pieces are then pressed under heavy weights and hung in the sun to dry for approximately 10 days. The meat is then dipped in hot water, seasoned with dried oregano and dried in the sun for another day. Tsamarella is served as a snack and is ideal with zivania.
