This blog celebrates all things Ukrainian, and what better way to know and love a culture than through it's food? So, without further ado, I give you the first Ukrainian recipe:

Verenyky with Sour Cherries~ Courtesy of



  • 3 eggs
  • 5-6 glasses milk
  • 0.5 glass milk
  • 0.5 glass water
  • 800 g cherries
  • 0.5 glass sugar
  • 2-3 tbsp semolina
  • salt – to taste

Divide yolks and whites. Whip the whites stiffly. Add milk, water, flour, and salt. Knead stiff dough. Leave it for 30 minutes.


 Remove the seeds from the sour cherries. Mix them with sugar and semolina. Leave the ingredients for half of an hour. The semolina is used in order to prevent the runout of the cherry juice and the adhesion of varenyky during the boiling. The semolina does not influence the taste.

Then roll the dough, cut off the rounds. Place filling on each round, join the edges and paste them up.

Boil varenyky in salty water. Serve hot with sour cream.
