“Trahanas” or "xinohondros" is made from wheat and sour milk, mixed together, cut into pieces and left to dry in the August or September heat. This way, it is preserved as dry pieces and can be used for cooking all winter long. Its taste is quite interesting and could probably fall in the “love it” or “hate it” category of foods :) In any case, it sure worth a try! Απλώνουμε Τραχανά (Ξινόχοντρο)! (CC-BY-SA 3.0)
