Jota (sauerkraut and bean soup)
A maneštra with pickled cabbage is called jota. (It is incorrect to say "maneštra from jota".)
It has a hearty, tangy taste and typically includes smoked pork spareribs.
Some Istrians prefer their maneštra even more sour, so a tablespoon of vinegar is sprinkled on the soup just before serving.
