I would have to drink more to that than anyone else present, to prove the leading position of the Oecumenical Patriarch in all things!

Slivo and coffee?ÂÂ  Ugh...ÂÂ  For some reason, I don't think plum coffee would taste too good...  :P

Anyway, can you make T***ish coffee if you don't have the right pot?  How would do that, just boil it in a small stove pot or what?

Brother,

I'm not sure because I've never made it without.  I'm not sure if you can make "Kajmak" without it (please anyone who can give me the English translation for"Kajmak", I'd appreciate it).  Kajmak is the thick film that builds on top of the water.

If you use a larger pot, I don't think you will have Kajmak (pronounced Kye-muck) and the coffee will be too thin.  T****sh coffee that is too thin is just no good.

Interesting, SS99.  Whereabouts are the dimensions for that pot (just rough estimates, please)?  I'm very interested, even though I'm going to have to wait 10 more days before I make it...

Philip,

    Believe it or not, they come in all shapes, sizes and colors.  I would say the average "dzezva" is about 5-6 inches tall with a base circumference of about 5 inches and a top circumference of about 4 inches.

Kajmak is "cream" (the best I can come up with)...

The pot is about 10 cm high and 10 cm wide (thats like medium one, if you are student and you wanna stay awake all night you smash 2 of those... and you wont sleep for a week)..


Ok.. this is bosnian way of making KAFA:


In a pot pour water about 7/8 full.
Let is boil...
when it starts boiling pull it off the fire (leave the fire on) (I use gas so I have fire)...
pour a spoon (tea spoon) of coffee and a spoon of sugar for each cup you will drink from that pot.

Mix it well and place it back on fire... mix it gently and wait for it to rise (be carefull not to spill it all over), if you want more cream, once it subsides put it back on again and wait for it to rise again.


You drink it black and sweet, such is life.

You drink it from small mugs (trust me if you drink it from the big, you will die from not being able to sleep until 2009.

Although I was raised in the "metric" system, our young brother Philip, is (likely) born and raised in the USA... so would you stop that metric nonsense and get back to inches and pounds!!! lol  :P

High pressure legal life??? I'm leaving the office 30 minutes, so I hang out with my 2 week old (and my sister coming from out of town).

Government???  Are you kidding me?  Anathema to the government.

Yes.

Where?

St. Mary's, San Antonio

When?

Starting my second year in three weeks.

How?

Um, very carefully?

So I can be a prosecutor.  Which is where I am right now, actually.  Surfing OC.net from my intern desk while thinking I loathe this particular defendant.  He hand-writes five motions a day that I have to deal with.  Guess he doesn't have anything else to do since he can't make bond.  ::)

A man went to a brain store to get some brain to complete a study. He sees a sign remarking on the quality of professional brain offerred at this particular brain store. He begins to question the butcher about the cost of these brains.

"How much does it cost for engineer brain?"

"Three dollars an ounce."

"How much does it cost for programmer brain?"

"Four dollars an ounce."

"How much for lawyer brain?"

"$1,000 an ounce."

"Why is lawyer brain so much more?"

"Do you know how many lawyers we had to kill to get one ounce of brain?"

A lawyer's dog, running around town unleashed, heads for a butcher shop and steals a roast. The butcher goes to the lawyer's office and asks, "if a dog running unleashed steals a piece of meat from my store, do I have a right to demand payment for the meat from the dog's owner?" The lawyer answers, "Absolutely."

"Then you owe me $8.50. Your dog was loose and stole a roast from me today."

The lawyer, without a word, writes the butcher a check for $8.50. The butcher, having a feeling of satisfaction, leaves.

Three days later, the butcher finds a bill from the lawyer: $100 due for a consultation.

"What I replied to Silouan above translates as:
"Tell the truth! Everyone knows we stole it from the Turks."    As we did with other "status symbols" like the "komboloi" (worry beads). It makes me laugh when I see Diaspora Greeks proudly displaying their worry beads as a sign of their ethnicity. The true "Greek" hot beverages are "Mountain Tea" (Tsai tou vounou), Sage Tea and Chamomile Tea (hamomilo)."

But the Turks from Turkey *are* actually Greeks just mixed with the Seljuks (as I've read) so any tradition coming from the Asia Minor area is still Greek but not mainland Greek, like the Greeks of Pontos, Smyrni, Cappadocia, Myra where St. Nicholas came from etc...unless all these traditions came from the Seljuk culture from central Asia near Persia.

I was talking to some of my greek friends one day and some of them said that the Greeks were originally all blonde-haired and blue-eyed (like the "Alexander" movie) before the turks came. Some say that if you look at the iconography this can tell you about the people which I think has a small truth...byzantine-greek icons present people as having darker and coarser features. But then again there are Russian icons which are called "black", even the Polish "black Madonna" icon. Then again, some cultures like Ethiopian iconography portrays people to be black and chinese iconography portrays them to have oriental features.

In a nutshell how can you be sure which traditions aren't Greek (mainland AND Asia minor) and which are? Anything thats not European or westernized? The culture of Greece was never a fully western or European culture and neither was it fully an eastern culture. It's a mix between two worlds, two mindsets. The westernization of Greece only started later on this past century.
