Winnowing fava

Today in many places of Amorgos the residents still winnow ‘katsouni’ (sweet pea -fava) or their barley –except that instead of donkeys they use machines. “Fava”, as the Amorgians call it, comes from ‘katsouni’, which constituted their basic food. You can try fava in all the taverns. In the past they cultivated cereal as well, such as meslin (wheat and rye). The bread and “pavli”, as they called their rusks, would be made of this.
