ABC Wednesday "M" is for "meat"

Serbs are BIG meat eaters. This window display shows you several kinds of dried and smoked meats, along with a small selection of fresh meat below. The stuff hanging in the plastic bag is a kind of shredded 'cracklings', or 'cvartci" (CHVART-see) or fried pork rinds. You can buy them in small pieces or shredded, the latter being called 'duvan cvarci" (DOO-van CHVART-see) or 'tobacco cracklings', since the shredded meat resembles shredded tobacco.

Check out other M's on ABC WEDNESDAY.

Quite a varied array! Not so immediately identifiable as my venerable rockfish, though -:)

Looks good to me.

Serbs big on meat? You got that right! We break for meat!
Seriously, I don't know a single vegetarian, let alone vegan, in Serbia. Things might have changed lately, but not sure about it...
The line from the movie "My Big Fat Greek Wedding" is spot-on for all Balkan people: "Whaaat? You don't eat meat?? (party stops dead in tracks) No problem. We'll get you some lamb! (party continues)"...

A great display of the different meats. I have to admit I like my meat too. Thanks for sharing your M choice with us.

Mmmmm. Winter is on its way. A bit chilly. Good weather for a "choucroute." Your picture makes me think of giant platters of "choucroute." Lots of charcuterie, with boiled potatoes, and Dijon mustard, and wine, of course. Definitely not on the top of the list of healthy menus, but .....

Many dinners hanging there - nice shot!

Very fun and interesting to see as it looks quite different from the meat departments of my local grocery stores over here!

The cvartci are very popular in the south. I actually saw them in a store in Canada two days ago.
