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 never been disappointed with anything purchased from Diane Kochilas, and this spoon sweet was no exception.
My family loves this sour cherry. We put it on our yogurt and to me personally, it reminds me of the times my mother used to make this. You keep bringing the tastes that we grew up with and that have enjoyed.
Very sweet. A little goes a long way.
This is an extraordinary treat. The match with unsweetened Greek yogurt is so perfect it is almost beyond description, and of course, the chewy texture is wonderful on crackers, hot cereal, by itself. The generous jars never seem to last long enough!
Very sweet and cherries have great flavor and texture.
