Sour Cherry Spoon Sweet from the Arcadia Highlands, Peloponnese (13.4 oz)

Idiston

$7.95

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.  

Traditionally enjoyed by the spoon as a treat, these versatile gems will take your Greek yogurt to another level and they make a delicious addition to the rest of the breakfast table. Mix in with hot cereals like oatmeal, spread over toast, use as topping on pancakes, waffles and French toast. The intense, complex flavors are also a perfect pairing with your favorite cheese, and make a scrumptious topping for ice-cream, cheesecake, and custards.

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. 

Vyssinó (sour cherry)

Vyssino (VEEsee noh) is the name of the well-known tiny sour cherry that makes for one of the most beloved Greek spoon sweets. Sourced from a collective of local farmers in the highlands of Arcadia on the central Peloponnese, the fruit is irresistibly crunchy, with intense aroma and a delicious, tangy, tart flavor.

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.

Best ever Sour Cherry Preserved

Just delicious sour cherry preserves. The syrup is a little thin which results in unintentional spills, but this is the best we have ever had.
