Apokti refers to one of the authentic and traditional meat products from Cyprus that is made from goat meat. Goat meat is taken from young animals under the age of two (2) years. Once the animal is slaughtered, the entrails and the head are removed. The meat is then washed and salted before it is left to dry naturally under the sun. When fully dried, it is cut into small pieces, washed with water and fried in moderate temperature with the addition of mint. Apokti is mostly served with vegetables.
