Ciubritsa and Sharena Sol

Ciubritsa is the Bulgarian word for savory, which is a quintessential herb in the region. It is also the prime ingredient in Bulgaria’s most favoured spice mixture, Sharena Sol, which is a combination of savory, paprika and salt. Sometimes, other herbs or spices are added, such as fenugreek, black pepper, parsley and even ground pumpkin seeds, but the soul of the blend has always been and will always be the fundamental trio of salt, paprika and savory.

Here is one recipe for Sharena Sol; it can be tweaked as you wish with the proportions, but this is a good place to start.

Sharena Sol:

4 Tablespoons savory (unspecified, winter savory is suggested), dried and ground

3 tablespoons of paprika (unspecified, hot Hungarian paprika is suggested), dried and ground

2.5 tablespoons sea salt

Mix together and store in a container in a cool, dry place.

In the Croatian language, Sharana literally means "coloured" or even "Striped".Wow, I'm actually colouring salt. Nope! Heck, it's no wonder translating is so hard.
