Found this on-line requested by a fellow Zarrie needed for my lekvar (LEHK-vahr) Kugel recipe.( I was able to find it canned. A thick, soft spread made of fruit (usually prunes or apricots) cooked with Sugar. This Hungarian specialty is used to fill a variety of pastries and cookies. lekvar can be purchased in cans or jars in most supermarkets.
