Λαμπριάτικο-τοπικό έδεσμα των Καπετανιανών!

Ένα ειδικό τοπικό πασχαλινό έδεσμα του χωριού Καπετανιανά των Αστερουσίων με μακρά παράδοση.

Λίγο μετά την τελετή της Ανάστασης του Χριστού ανοίγουν οι τρεις φούρνου του χωριού και όλοι οι κάτοικοι παίρνουν το πήλινο σκεύος τους, μέσα στο οποίο έχουν ετοιμάσει το πασχαλινό φαγητό τους. Τρώγεται αμέσως μετά τα μεσάνυχτα, στο πρώτο τραπέζι που περιέχει κρέας ύστερα από νηστεία πολλών εβδομάδων. Το φαγητό φουρνίζεται συνήθως μόλις αρχίσει να νυχτώνει (περίπου στις  7 το απόγευμα) και είναι έτοιμο μετά τα μεσάνυχτα!

Ας δούμε την παρασκευή αυτού του ιδιαίτερου πιάτου!



Καθαρίζουμε το ρύζι, το αλατίζουμε και το βάζουμε στο πήλινο αγγείο. Στη μέση βάζουμε τα κεφαλάκι, ούτως ώστε να καλύπτεται σχεδόν εξ ολοκλήρου από το ρύζι.  Το σκεπάζουμε με τα πλευρά και πάνω απ αυτά βάζουμε λίγο «κνισάρι» (λιπώδης υμένας ζώου). Καλύπτουμε τη επιφάνεια με ένα λεπτό στρώμα τσίπας(πέτσας). Το βάζουμε στο φούρνο και το αφήνουμε για περισσότερες από τρεις ώρες να ψηθεί.

Καλή σας όρεξη!
