Shishche /Shashlik (meat skewer)

A type of Bulgarian meal

Shishche /Shashlik (meat skewer)


2 lbs pork shoulder, cut into big cubes
100 ml vodka
1 tablespoon honey
1 tablespoon black pepper
1 tablespoon mustard
Pieces of onion
red or green pepper
Some baby mushrooms


Bring the milk to a boil, put in jars or other large containers, and wait until it cools down. It has to be hot but cold enough so you can put your finger in it and hold it there for a few seconds without burning yourself.
Dilute the bacteria in some lukewarm milk and add it to the jars. Stir well. Cover the jars with blankets, tuck them in good. Do not put the lids on the jars so the milk can breathe. Let them stay overnight or for about 8 hours. Store yoghurt in the fridge.
