Here are the promised photos of our authentic Armenian meal:
Michael was barbecuing the marinated chicken and beef outside, while Shakeh was sauteing some dried bar-bar berries (kinda like cranberries) with some sugar.
She added some saffron to water, put it in the microwave, and let it steep for a little while. Then they strained out the saffron, and added the yellow water to a portion of the rice.
This was the finished product, and it was so delicious!
