Living here in the north west of Bosnia and Herzegovina means that I am constantly exposed to the various traditional and cultural activities that pop up pretty unannounced from time to time.

I never ever tire of it.

Take for example a typical late Spring or Summer meal.

Kotlić is the name of a traditional metal container with a handle but seems to now be associated with a variation in Goulash with a Balkan, rather than Hungarian twist.
The meal is cook in an open container over an open, wood fuelled fire.

The basic ingredients:

Onions
Bacon
Potatoes
Carrots
Beef
Mushrooms
Homemade Tomato sauce (not ketchup)
Red Bell Pepper
Vegeta
Parsley
Salt
Pepper
Herbs to your liking

Basically the onions and bacon are fried off then the ingredients into the Kotlić.

Add water and cook for 2-2.5 hours.

The skill comes from the experience of cooking without an oven thermometer or a watch!

The meal is accompanied with fresh bread, picked cucumbers, Ajvar, an amazingly refreshing salad from young cheese (almost like a thick joghurt) mixed with diced fresh spring onions and cucumber from the garden.

With all the technological advances that we experience day on day with crystal clear, almost perfect audio, I still reminisce over the fading in and out at night of AM signals.

Radio was so much more exciting to listen to "back in the day".
