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 pairing for much of the breakfast line up. 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 superb topping for ice-cream, cheesecake, and custards.
We were thrilled to find and partner with Idiston (EEthee stahn) to bring this wonderful bit of Greece to you. Idiston uses simple time perfected methods and each fruit in their line-up is sourced from the area in Greece that is best known for producing it.
Fitting for its intoxicating fragrance, quince is a fruit with an ancient heritage and was the sacred emblem of Aphrodite, the goddess of love. Thick, tough and difficult to work with when raw, its sweet delicate flavor and smooth texture comes to life at the hands of Anastasia and Nancy of Idiston. They source the highest quality quince in Greece from the Northwestern slopes of Mt. Pelion, adjacent to the sea - one of its most renowned growing areas. Their traditional recipe adds an interesting touch, a bit of home grown rose geranium.
