Ttu Lavash

Ttu lavash - sweet rollups, often referred to as "fruit lavash" or "fruit leather," are a delightful and traditional Armenian treat. They are made by cooking down fruit puree, often from apricots or plums, until it thickens and can be spread out thinly on large sheets. Today we talk about some key details about these delicious sweets.

Ttu lavash is celebrated for its simplicity and use of natural ingredients. It typically consists of fruit puree, sugar, and sometimes a touch of lemon juice for acidity. While apricots and plums are the most common fruits used, you can find variations made from other fruits like pomegranates, cherries, or figs, depending on the region and season.
The process of making these rollups involves simmering the fruit puree until it thickens to a spreadable consistency. It's then poured onto large flat surfaces and left to dry naturally in the sun. After spreading the fruit puree, it's exposed to the sun to dry. This traditional drying method not only preserves the fruit but also intensifies its flavor. Once dried, the result is a chewy, slightly sticky, and intensely flavorful fruit roll-up. It's both sweet and tangy, with the concentrated essence of the fruit.
Ttu lavash is a versatile snack. It can be enjoyed on its own as a sweet treat, cut into bite-sized pieces, or even used as a natural sweetener in various dishes.
These rollups have deep cultural roots in Armenia and are often made in homes, especially during the fruit harvest season. They are also commonly gifted to friends and family.
Because they are made from pure fruit, Ttu lavash is a healthy snack option. It provides vitamins, fiber, and natural sugars.
As with many traditional recipes, you can find regional and family variations. Some may add spices like cinnamon or nuts for added texture and flavor.
