Sudzhuk is a product that visually resembles the similarly named sujuk sausages from Armenia and neighboring countries. However, this product is instead made with nuts and fruit syrup. To make Sudzhuk, walnuts are threaded onto strings and placed into a dense grape syrup. Flour is added to make the syrup thicker. Then the sausage-shaped resulting product is hung to dry in the sun. Sudzhuk symbolizes richness and wellness. It is eaten during holidays in Armenia, and it is a necessary product for the New Year’s table. It is made in the regions of Kotayk’, Aragatsotn and Ararat in central Armenia. It can still be found for sale in local markets, but knowledge of this production is at risk of disappearing.
