Ozankoy Carob Molasses Festival begins today

The 5th Ozankoy Carob Molasses Festival begins today and runs until Sunday. The Mayor will open the festival at 7 pm this evening and each day the festival will commence at 7 pm.

Features include folk dance and line dancing shows. There will be musicians giving several different concerts.

Demonstrations will be held on how to use carob molasses in dessert recipes, plus displays of carob syrup-making. Carob molasses (or “harnup pekmezi” in Turkish) is similar to black treacle and is popular as a breakfast condiment, especially when mixed with tahini. It is known historically as Cyprus’ black gold and has been widely exported for generations.

This festival has proved to be popular in the past and looks to continue on in the same tradition.
