I swear I’m not intentionally featuring bites that are vaguely coprolitic in appearance, but I admit there’s been a pattern lately. You have to wonder what sort of reaction you’d get passing out churchkhela at Halloween, but in the Caucasus no one bats an eye at these stringed, grape-enrobed walnut confections. Traditionally a byproduct of the grape harvest, they are made by threading nuts onto string, dipping them repeatedly in a paste made from boiled grape must, flour, and sugar, then hanging them up to dry.
