Lekvar Museum in Vynohradovo Area Draws in Tourists

Lekvar museum was opened in Botar back in 2012. Today, it has at least 15 types of jams from various fruit and vegetables as well as jams brought from more than 28 countries of the world. Visitors can taste 6 types of jams (the assortment may change according to season). Alongside the standard apricot, blackberry or strawberry jams, tourists will be treated to quite unusual tastes like that of rosehip.

It is not only delicious but also very good for your health as rosehip is rich in vitamin C and is recommended for the prophylaxis of cold. If you want to improve your digestion, plum lekvar will be of help. Plum jam is actually genuine lekvar.

The technology of making lekvars is quite intricate  –  it may sometimes take up to 24 hours. If you are making large amounts, the process may take up to 1.5 days. True lekvars have a smoked aftertaste, they are not too sweet, and the consistency is quite thick. Another curious thing is that lekvars can be added to pastry: various cakes and desserts, and they also go well with meats. The guests share the same emotions  –  they are surprised that some berries can be used to make jam and very a delicious one at that. The lekvar museum is part of the region’s Sweet Route, including wine cellars, gastronomic festivals, and other delicious specialties of the region. The number of specialties increases each year, so the tourists have a reason to come back to Zakarpattia again and again.
