  • About

Korkoti is cousin to two other wheat berry preparations that are sweetened with sugar: the Turkish hedik, with chick-peas and poppy seeds; and the Armenian hadig, using pomegranate seeds and raisins. In Georgia, korkoti is sometimes made in celebration of a baby’s first tooth. Since the wheat berries remain chewy, I very much doubt that one tooth suffices for chewing, but their ultrasweet taste could cause even adults to coo.
