Rose Petal Spoon Sweet from Chios Island (8.8 oz)

Idiston

$6.95

Intensely flavorful, and bordering on exotic, few things bring to mind Greek tradition like the delectable “spoon sweet”.  This ancient Greek delicacy was born as a method of preserving the intensely flavorful fruits that only Greece can produce.  

We were thrilled to partner with Idiston (EEthee stahn) to bring you this wonderful bit of Greece. Idiston uses simple time perfected methods and each fruit in their line is specifically sourced from the particular area in Greece that is best known for growing it. 

Triandá fyllo (Rose Petal)

Exotic and intensely aromatic this heady concoction is a must try for those who love the flavor of rose as well as the uninitiated. 

It is made from a timeless recipe that involves macerating the delicate petals of ekatostafylo, a small pink, puffy rose renowned for its intoxicating aroma and powerful essential oils.

Delicious by the spoon it will transform any dairy based dish such as Greek yogurt or ice-cream (rose with vanilla!!) and add a sophisticated exotic dimension to a wide range of desserts.

Idiston sources its roses from the northwestern side of the famous island of Chios.

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.

This all-natural rose preserve is not too sweet. Great on buttered toast with Afternoon Tea.

Delightful & smells so divine, too!

DE-LI-CIOUS!!!! Great over ice cream! I have a recipe for Persian ice cream where I typically add a little rose water but this time I mixed the Rose Petal Spoon Sweet into vanilla ice cream with a bit of saffron and crushed pistachios! Can't get better than this!! I ordered two jars but this will be in my next order for sure! In fact, I'll order extra for Christmas gifts!
