From pagan times Carnival season is connected with transition from winter to spring. For that reason Carnival processions and festivals are held with the masks to make winter and bad spirits go away.

STRUDEL WITH TARRAGON

Last time we made Apple strudel which is well known dessert that originated from Habsburg Empire. As already mentioned, we have many kinds of strudels in Slovenia. The recipes vary from house to house. We  try even today to find new delicious combinations. To achieve that we are experimenting with different filings.

One of a "very Slovenian" kind of filling is made with cottage cheese and tarragon. We are using tarragon as a herb that gives cottage cheese filling a very special and delicious taste. In one of my previous posts we made Slovenian traditional rolled dumplings with tarragon.  We also make our famous dessert Potica with that herb.
