Amber sweetness

Altai is rich in traditional recipes as well. They include Chegen’ - boiled milk that has been fermented in a keg fumed with old fallen leaves and bird cherry. Another dish is tutpach - little cubes of unleavened dough with wild bunches of onion. There is also blood sausage, kan, prepared with the addition of milk. Altai honey is considered one of the healthiest. Here is an incomplete list of bee plants: angelica, spurge, oregano, Kuril tea, sweet clover, and sow thistle. Is it possible to choose between the different kinds of honey: acacia, green, amber, mountain and many more? The answer is – it is not. When you get the chance – take a little bit of everything.
