Greece has an abundance of products that have a naturally sweet taste; thanks to their great variety, Greek cuisine features a number of desserts using ingredients such as fresh and dried fruit, honey, nuts and dairy. Arguably the most typical homestyle Greek dessert is what we call a “spoon sweet”: a preserve made from almost any type of fruit, but also from various nuts and even some vegetables!
Meletiadis Spoon Sweets
Spoon sweets are fresh fruit cooked in sugar & water with a touch of fresh lemon juice or spices. The best way to enjoy them is as a topping on Greek strained yoghurt or vanilla/chocolate ice-cream. Also why don’t you try them instead of jam on a buttered slice of fresh bread! The delicious age-old tradition in Greece of offering “spoon sweets” to visitors goes way back to the fourteenth century. Glyka tou koutaliou, which means spoon sweets, are traditional, homemade sweet fruit preserves, served in a spoon as a gesture of hospitality in Greece served in a spoon as a gesture of hospitality and can be made from almost any fruit, though sour and bitter fruits are especially prized.
