Ingredients:
  • 2 1/4 lb (1 kg) boneless pork, cubed
  • pinch of dried oregano
  • pepper
  • olive oil, for brushing
  • 8 Pita breads for souvlaki (p. 514)
  • 5 tablespoons (70 g/2 3/4 oz) butter, melted
  • 1 1/2 cups (350 ml/12 fl oz) beef stock
  • 2 1/4 cups (500 ml/18 fl oz) strained plain or thick Greek yogurt

For Tomato Sauce

  • 3 tablespoons (40 g/1 1/2 oz) butter
  • 1 garlic clove, finely chopped
  • 1 1/2 cups (350 ml/12 fl oz) pureed fresh tomatoes
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • pinch of cayenne pepper
  • pepper

  • Preparation:

    Thread the cubes of pork onto 8 wooden skewers, put them on a platter, sprinkle with oregano, season with pepper, and brush with olive oil. Cover and leave in the refrigerator until required. To make the sauce, melt the butter in a pan. Add the garlic and cook over low heat, stirring frequently, for 1-2 minutes.

     Foods of Sporades: Part 2 Almonds a la Sporades


    Almonds a la Sporades

    In the same way that the chestnut tree spread from Asia Minor to Thessaly and thence to the Sporades Islands, the almond tree (Prunus dul-cis) likewise found its way to these small, rocky islands where it quickly put down roots thanks to its ability to survive on very little water.

    Prior to the commercial cultivation of the almond tree, consumption of the seeds of the wild variety, which contain prussic acid, may well have caused unfortunate side-effects. Since about 500 B.C., however, sweet almonds, amygdale, have been a familiar ingredient in desserts, combined with eggs and walnuts, for instance.

    Almonds, like pistachios, are classified as stone fruits. The part used in baking or in candies is the white inner seed, with its brown hull removed, and is found inside the stone enclosed by the green fleshy fruit case. The Sporades Islands, despite their limited agricultural possibilities, have developed almond cultivation to a level not seen on any other group of Greek islands.

    On Skopelos alone, which is also famous for its plums, 16.5 US tons (15 tonnes) of almonds are harvested each year. The women of the Sporades make an almond cream from peeled almonds by grating them while still warm and mixing them quickly with sugar and water. This cream is served by the spoonful. Grated white almonds, lots of superfine sugar, lightly beaten egg white and flower essence are the ingredients which go to make khamalid, a marzipan-type delicacy, which is usually served at weddings and on name days.

    The mixture is shaped into an appropriate form for the occasion, baked in the oven and finally dusted with confectioners' sugar. Roxedes is prepared in a similar way to khamalid, but using coarse sugar instead and not baked, which means it does not keep as well. Almond milk, amigdalozoumi, is a popular drink during Lent and at funerals. This is made by simmering peeled, ground almonds in boiling water and then straining the liquid through a cloth.

    Inside the green case of unripe almonds. The white kernel is still soft. Once ripe, the flesh becomes dry and the hardened kernel protects the seed, which is the actual almond.
    Countless almonds are cracked open to make the almond snacks and desserts.

     

    KOURABIEDES Almond cookies

    1 1/2 cups/200 g whole almonds, peeled
    2 cups/ 450 g soft butter
    7/8 cup/200 g sugar
    3 egg yolks
    4 tbsp brandy
    Seeds from 1 vanilla pod
    8 1/2 cups/900 g all-purpose flour
    2 tsp baking powder
    4 tbsp rose water
    Confectioners' sugar

    Directions

    Preheat the oven to 375 °F (190 °C). Lay the almonds on a baking sheet and roast in the oven, before chopping them up finely. Cream the butter and sugar together in a bowl, then add the egg yolks, brandy, and vanilla seeds in that order. Sift the flour and baking powder into the bowl, add the almonds and mix together well. Sprinkle your work surface with flour and tip the mixture out onto it, kneading it into a smooth dough. Roll this out until it is just under 1/2 inch/1 cm thick. Using the rim of a glass, cut out small semicircles and arrange them on greased baking sheets. Bake in a preheated oven for about 20 minutes. Leave to cool on a cooling rack, sprinkle with rose water and dust with confectioners' sugar.

      Bronze Trunnion Axe
         
      Bronze trunnion axe from Karphi, Temple Road East in Crete (1100 B.C.). Horns are short, knob-like projections with linear decoration. The tool was supported on the wooden shaft by straps from leather.

    It was used for wood's cutting and elaboration. The axe was already known in Paleolithic period. Its function depended on user's will, as Electra of Sophocles describes.

    Samothrace

    GEOGRAPHY

    Samothrace is located in the northeast Aegean, opposite Alexandroupolis, from which it is just 29 nautical miles distant. It belongs to the Prefecture of Evros and covers an area of 178 sq. km., has 58 km. of coastline and a population of 2,871. There is a local boat service from Alexandroupolis and, once a week, a connection with Kavala and Lemnos.

    A mountainous island (highest peak Fengari, 1448 m. a.s.l.) with dense vegetation cover and numerous monuments, it is still relatively untouched by tourism and may be recommended for quiet holidays. In addition to its capital, Samothrace, there are other villages on the island: Kamariotissa, Palaiopolis, Xiropotamos, Therma, Profitis Ilias and Lakoma.

    HISTORY

    Samothrace was first inhabited in the Neolithic era. In around 1000 BC Thracian colonizers came here, intermarrying with the indigenous population. The island's present capital, Samothrace (Chora), is located on its west coast. A traditional town, it is dominated by the massive medieval castle. At Palaiopolis, on the north side of the island, there are traces of the ancient city, built in around 700 BC close to the sanctuary of the Cabeiroi (Great gods). The sanctuary, which attained its zenith in Hellenistic times, was never totally destroyed and has been excavated by the American School of Classical Studies.

    Various sections of the Cyclopean wall, palace (6th century BC edifice), theatre, propylon and the foundations of diverse buildings of the sanctuary (temples, "ex votos", votive of Philip II and Alexander IV etc.) have been revealed. One may also visit the ancient cemetery (7th century BC-2nd century AD) and remnants of
    medieval towers (15th century) nearby.

    Among the diverse finds displayed in its small Archaeological Museum is a plaster cast of the famous statue of the Winged Victory, discovered at Palaiopoli and nowadays housed in the Louvre, Paris. At Therma (13 km. from the harbour), where there is a therapeutic spring, one may enjoy the unique vista of the coast opposite, as well as the islands of Thasos and Lemnos. There are excursions by local boats to the southern shores (Ammos) of Samothrace with their dense vegetation, streams and brooks. There is little provision for tourists (just one hotel and a few rooms to let) and a very rudimentary network of roads.
