On the 25th of June, the Slovenians are celebrating their National Day. On this occasion, many are going to prepare some Ajdovi Žganci Pečenica, the Slovenian national dish, which consists of soured turnips and sausages.
The name žganci comes from the word žgati which means ”to burn” or ”to roast”. There are many different variations of žganci throughout Slovenia. Žganci is a typical homemade winter meal. Žganci may not be the best-looking dish but it is certainly the ultimate comfort food.
