Kainari

Its origin is from the depths of Asia Minor, hence its name - in Turkish kaynar it means "boiling" or "boiling", and is meticulously used to refer to the "beautiful but inaccessible woman" - It was known for its healing properties, especially in colds. Nowadays, Kainari is drunk outside the houses and in several villages of Lesvos and especially in the area of ​​Agiassos, where it is served in traditional cafes. His recipe includes six different spices, cinnamon-cloves-nutmeg-cardamom-ginger-pepper and, as is usually the case in these cases, remains hidden and transmitted orally through the years. 

As a decoction, its preparation is simple: In a cup of hot water pour 1/4 teaspoon of sugar, mix and add honey or sugar.

A slice of orange or bergamot is a great fit. But besides its use as a beverage you can use it to flavor hot wine (glühwein) or pastry (to flavor syrup or cake), but also in cooking (reddish, stew etc)
