  • About

Cornus mas, a flowering tree in the dogwood family, produces Cornelian cherries, beloved by the Georgians for their sour tang. They’re often used in cooking and preserving and are displayed in shiny heaps in the markets in early autumn. You can substitute dried cranberries or sour cherries here, with steamed or baked pumpkin or squash. “This recipe is based on one from Barbara Jorjadze’s cookbook, published in 1885,” says Meriko. “Baked pumpkin will result in a dryer mixture.”
