Sour Cherry Spoon Sweet from the Arcadia Highlands, Peloponnese (13.4 oz)
How to Enjoy
Traditionally in Greece, spoon sweets were served by the spoonful in a small dish with a side of coffee or tea and cold water—hence the name "spoon sweet". Beyond tradition, spoon sweets are a tremendously versatile confection. They make wonderful toppings for Greek yogurt, ice cream, or baked goods like cakes or cheesecake. As a breakfast treat, mix in with hot cereals like oatmeal, spread over toast, or use as topping on pancakes, waffles and French toast. The intense, complex flavors are also a perfect pairing with your favorite cheese.
I've been searching for a good spoon sweet for years
I've been searching for a good spoon sweet for years, and this is the best I have found. I was in Greece, and all the hotels had great tasting quince spoon sweet. I went to a grocery store in Greece, I have searched online in America, and I have contacted one of the hotels. I couldn't find what I was looking for. Unfortunately, this shop does not have very good quince spoon sweet, but this cherry spoon sweet is excellent.
Gave this to my sister and brother. They are looking forward to enjoying them.
This has to be the best cherry confection in the world!
A real taste of Greece
One of the most evocative culinary memories of Greece is the tart yet evolved flavor of sour cherry, and this spoon sweet is exactly as anticipated. Fantastic on ice cream or as a filling for a pastry, you will not think of anything other than cherry tree dotted hills in the countryside when you taste this. A real treat!
THIS IS SO YUMMY - EVERYONE LOVES IT!!!!
