Another Armenian cold cut I like is Sujuk. It is much spicier than Basterma, Sujuk is a bit more peppery through out the the meat unlike Basterma which is primarily around the skin. Sujuk like Basterma though is dry cured. It is a bit firmer in its texture. They both however can be eaten as appetizers or in an omelet. Here is an interesting article and video from Real Simple suggesting what items to purchase if you are ever in an Armenian market. You know if you already don't have an idea what to purchase from reading my blog. I would have to add Tarragon leaves, Basterma, Sujuk and black basil to their list. Good eating.
