Bukovo or Mediterranean chili is the spice that comes from chopped red peppers and is the version of Greek chili.
Can be combined with oregano, marjoram, basil, parsley and garlic, or pepper.
Its name is due to a well-known red pepper from a monk who cultivated it in the 16th century in a monastery in Serbia. Bukovo was also named after the monastery, in which the pepper of the same name was cultivated.
In the cuisine of Northern Greece, boukovo is something like salt and pepper and has daily use in almost all dishes. Suitable for most cooked foods. This Mediterranean chili is, among other things, a favorite spice of hungry night owls, since it is included in tripe, but also in Macedonian soups, while it is not missing from cooked or grilled.
