Heritage and Folklore

In Russia, to be precise, in the South Urals region there is honey which is called Bashkir honey. Since ancient times the indigenous people in the area have been raising bees and producing honey. There is evidence to suggest this. Archaeologists found tools to collect wild forest honey at one of the oldest burial sites in Bashkiria. In addition, there are cave paintings that have survived to this day which confirms that ancient people enjoyed a thick, sweet, and healthy liquid.

This sweet drink is part of the Bashkiria heritage and is an almost integral ingredient in the traditional cuisine of the region. For example, a dessert called chak-chak, which is a cookie made from a soft dough in the form of sticks drizzled with honey.
