soutzouk loukoum

σουτζούκ λουκούμ

classic soutzouk loukoum

A specialty of Komotini, a long sausage-shaped sweet made by stringing walnuts on a thread and dipping them in thickened grape must similar to loukoumi, then dried and dusted with powdered sugar to resemble a soutzouki sausage. You can get it in many flavours, and can be rolled in sesame seeds, sliced almonds, ground pistachios and even ground Oreo cookies.
