One of Iranians’ favourite snacks is Lavashak, or Persian fruit leather. Iranians love foods that have a rich taste, whether it’s a sweet taste, as you can see in most Persian pastries or a rich sour taste, like pickled vegetables or Gharaghoroot. Persian fruit leather is a fruit roll with a rich, sour and salty taste.
Lavashak, or fruit leather, is made of different fruits. This snack is perhaps one of the most popular souvenirs of Iran, which is no less famous than Iranian saffron. A thick extract of fruits is made and then dried to make Lavashak. In the old days, people mashed the excess amount of fruits and dried them under the sun, which is how Lavashak was first made. During this time, different combinations of fruit and additives have been used to make Lavashak. Even industrial methods have been used. However, the basis is more or less the same.
