This recipe is from Croatian culinary TV show called “Food from forgotten times”. The recipe is from Dubrovnik. It is similar to “buzara” recipe. The recipe also mentions one herb which grows only in Croatia, maybe in Italy (Sicily). It is herb grows very close to sea end on stone banks. It has very thick leaves which are more similar to some kind of cactus. We pick this herb in May and pickle it. The most similar taste is fresh sage, so this recipe will have sage instead of this herb.
