Traganas night

To show locals and visitors on the island that Greek traditions are alive and kicking Tuesday night was traganas night. The goats were milked in the morning and the milk was put in the fridge until the evening. Wheat ( 1 kilo) and goat milk (4 liters) and salt in a big pan and stir. Nikos who has his own goat herd showed everybody how it is done and after that everybody who was around could eat. Another pan of traganas that was prepared earlier was brought in because after it has cooked the traganas has to sit for a while.

It was delicious and it was served with wine, water, ouzo and music. Great night ! Thank you folklore and cultural association!
