The thread is not edible. It serves as an essential part of the traditional preparation method, and a guarantee of the handcrafted nature of our Churchkhela.

Discover the rich history of Churchkhela, spanning nearly 3000 years from its origins in Georgia to its new home in Vancouver, BC. Passed down through generations, Churchkhela symbolizes tradition and hospitality, transcending mere sustenance to become a cherished gift of warmth and camaraderie.

With roots dating back to the 8th century BC, Churchkhela's enduring spirit and authentic recipes have made it a symbol of sharing and endurance, perfect for ancient travelers and modern enthusiasts alike.

Store in a dry, ventilated place, at a temperature not exceeding 22°C/71.6°F, like in your pantry!

In these conditions, Churchkhela is good for up to 6 months. However, fresh Churchkhela always tastes better. If stored for a longer period of time, a white coating may appear, don't be alarmed! This is the natural sugar coming to the surface as it dries. This is the process that allows Churchkhela to keep for so long without any preservatives (natural sugar from fruit juice acts as a preservative).
