According to custom, the ingredients should be either 7 or 9. Women in Skopelos make this pie once a year, on the eve of Saint
Fanourios name day, every 26th of August. They bring their pies to the
church of Saint Fanourios, where the priest blesses them with a nice
ceremony. After the Mass, the pies are cut and everybody is
welcome to taste them. This is a really interesting custom, so if you happen to be on
Skopelos this day, do not forget to visit one of the 3 churches of Saint
Fanourios which exist here, to watch the ceremony and taste the
different pies. The Mass begins at about 19.00''.
