Fuje on cooked prosciutto

Dish was made during Easter and is one of the most authentic dishes from Goriška Brda. It was served as an appetizer or as a side dish with the main course. The inspiration for creating this dish stemmed from frugality and Easter bread leftovers.

3 l water where prosciutto was cooked

Slice the bread into very thin slices (especially the crust).

Grind the whole lemon zest and drain the raisins.

Shake on bread and add sugar.

Dissolve the butter in a saucepan and fry the herbs.

Add to the mass and gradually add some of warm prosciutto soup.

Make sure that the mass does not become too thin.
