Have you ever heard about Churchkhela? Churchkhela is the best-known home-made sweet in Georgian traditional cuisine. These Georgian national sweetmeats are made of nuts beaded on a thread and cooked in flour-thickened grape juice. Georgians usually make Churchkhela in Autumn when the primary ingredients, grapes and nuts are harvested. It is a string of walnut halves that have been dipped in grape juice called Tatara or Pelamushi and dried in the sun. No sugar is added to make real Churchkhela!
