BUCKWHEAT

Zlatar hills are perfect for buckwheat cultivation.

It is gluten-free, often recommended to those with cardiovascular diseases and difficulties related to high cholesterol, blood sugar, and digestion issues.

The plant itself can only grow in hill areas at altitudes above 1,000 meters.

Make sure to try some of the local buckwheat specialties. They say that buckwheat production was long forgotten in Serbia for decades and that it was only rediscovered because locals managed to preserve traditional recipes such as the one for the buckwheat pie or pancakes.
