On 9 march in Romania,people celebrate a special day in the memory of the 40 christian marthyrs who have been killed in Armenia for their faith in Jesus Christ.The governor threw them in a lake but they miraculously escaped and that made one of the soldiers to become a christian too.

 This day coincides with the beginning of the agricultural year ,so the tradition has more a joyful spirit ..

 Today we make a special food -we prepare a dough and we cut it in form of eight with a special tool or you can simply cross it and make an 8,we bake them for almost 15 minutes and then boil them in water .After that add : cinnamon,sugar,rhum,lemon peel and nuts. It has a very good taste,it's so flavoured and sweet even though it's appeareance it's not so nice. This  "soup" symbolizes the lake where the marthyrs have been thrown.

 Are 2 types of "mucenici" -(as they are called-it means martyrs) ,one recipe is from the north of the country-the zone is called Moldova and they are like a cake with honey and nuts on top and the second recipe is this one that looks like a soup-from the south of the country-called Dobrogea.
