So, what is žito?

Žito is a staple ingredient in many traditional European cuisines, particularly in Eastern and Central Europe. Also known as "zhitnitsa" or "rye," this hardy cereal grain is a member of the wheat family and has been cultivated for thousands of years. Žito is a versatile ingredient that can be used to make bread, porridge, beer, and other fermented foods. It has a distinctive nutty flavor and a slightly sweet taste. It's high in fiber and protein, making it a nutritious addition to any meal. Despite being less commonly used than wheat, Žito is a flavorful and healthy alternative that adds variety to any dish.
