History of Cezerye (Carrot Sweet)

The first flavor that comes to mind when Mersin is mentioned is Cezerye (Carrot Sweet). After a laborious journey of 1.5 day, carrots harvested from the fields are ready for sale in the form of Cezerye. Since it does not contain additives, it stands out as a healthy dessert. The production of Cezerye begins with the first light of the day, harvesting carrots from the fields and transporting them to the workshops. The ends of the carrot are cut with great care to avoid damage. Carrots are boiled in boilers at high temperature for 1 hour. The carrots, which are extracted from the boilers with the lively form of orange color, are baked in the machines and cooked for another hour to become marmalade. It is then marmalade blended with water, beet sugar, spices and optionally with hazelnut, peanut, walnut or almond. The marmalade, carefully mixed by the master, is poured into the trays when it reaches the desired consistency and flattened with the help of a roller. The mixture is kept at room temperature for 1 day to gain the full taste and is cut in various shapes. Cezeryes blended with coconut in the hands of the masters are presented to the customers’ pleasure after they are packaged with care.
