It's still weirdo, isn't it? :D How come side by side a sugar and a soup that sour?

In our culture, we have no thing like these. I can't even think its taste :D

You should taste it. It's excellent.

Oh, we put sugar into many unusual things, like fried cabbage with black pepper (but it just caramelizes like the sautéed onion does, there is nothing strange in it) and it's eaten with meat, mostly duck or goose meat. Somewhat stranger combinations: broiled chicken and apricot jam (that's one dish); another dish: pasta (noodles) with cottage cheese, sour cream, salt, bacon AND sugar: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sUXMAORnuao

And we shouldn't forget the sweet pastries made with lard (pork lard, I know that's not eaten in Turkey, but any lard would do, even goose lard): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bcUAqAJ5rdI

And the ultimate Hungarian sweet treat is a bar of cottage cheese covered with chocolate (called Túró Rudi), to begin with. Sorry, this has nothing to do with Turkey, so I stop here. :)
