This picture was taken last Winter when we went to Turgutreis, Bodrum. The bazaar in Turgutreis is famous for its organic food. Almost everything there is produced by local farmers living in small villages and you can have the chance of buying products at first hand. You see dried eggplants and peppers hanging in this bazaar. These are dried by country people, so you can buy them without hesitating. You can also find these dried vegetables in most spice shops in Turkey. If you can’t dry them yourself during Summer, you can find them here to stuff them (recipe here). So if you happen to visit Turkey some day, don’t forget to buy some of these. They absolutely have a great flavor, very different from fresh ones.
