I finally was able to try real sumalak on Nooruz. None of us loved it even though I was a lot more positive about it when I made it five years ago (although I didn't get it quite right then- maybe I just like it undercooked). But there was lots of it available here in Bishkek on Wednesday. If I ever decide to try it again, it'll be in the crockpot and when we have friends from Central Asia visiting for Navruz. There's also this good recipe in English.
You could get a bottle or a cup.
Or bring your own jar to get filled.
There was plenty of sumalak everywhere to go around.
