Honey-cakes by Medona – the smell of Christmas.

Honey-cakes (deliciously spiced, decorated ginger-bread like cookies) are handmade and beautifully decorated with hand-piped lace inspired by the embroidery motifs from Liptov. Each piece is a small work of art – an original made with love. Medovníky are made exclusively from natural ingredients, without the addition of artificial dyes and preservatives. Freshly ground spices give medovníky their characteristic brown colour and unmistakeable flavour and aroma. Many of them also have healing properties.

T

IP: To keep medovníky fresh for as long as possible, store them in a pantry or on a balcony in winter. Do not expose them to the sun and store them in their original packaging in a dark and cool place. This will prevent them from drying out and loosing their colour (honey-cakes are free from artificial dyes; they are coloured with cocoa, the colour of which fades when exposed to sunlight.).

Medovníky from the picturesque village of Liptovská Lúžna.

To bake medovníky (deliciously spiced, decorated ginger-bread like cookies) that please the eyes as well as the taste buds is truly an art. Unique medovníky from Liptovská Lúžna are honestly handmade, with their decoration being a tasteful blend of tradition and creativity.

When decorating medovníky with traditional folk patterns from Liptov, they find inspiration mainly in the folk elements from Liptovská Lúžna, Liptovská Osada, Liptovské Revúce and other areas of the Liptov region. The craft of baking medovníky is, however, no longer only about embroidered cookies. Did you know that the dough for baking medovníky can also be used to, for example, bake a črpák (a mug with a decorated handle used by shepherds) or a valaška (a traditional Slovak axe)?

About Krmešáky

Krmeš is a picturesque part of the equally picturesque Liptov village of Vlachy located in the vicinity of the Liptovská Mara dam. This is where Slávka and Juro live, where they grow herbs and where they produce Krmešáky, 100% natural herbal soaps friendly to your skin and nature.

WE ARE A FAMILY-RUN COMPANY

Slávka Strenková: „The decision to live our lives in harmony with nature and to produce natural herbal soaps came about as the result of gradually recognizing the need for a life change. It came about gradually and naturally over the course of time. It was never the question of necessity or duty. It was a choice. It was not premeditated or planned, nor was it a project that needed to be finished by a certain deadline. Life itself has brought Krmešáky to our lives – to Krmeš.”
