For centuries “spoon sweets” – whole fruits, nuts, citrus peels, vanilla or mastic gum in sugary syrup – have been an integral part of Greek, Turkish, Balkan and Russian culture. Offered to visiting guests as a sign of hospitality, spoon sweets are traditionally served in a heaping teaspoon with a glass of water, or coffee. Or presented as an elegant spoonful in center of small dish of Greek yogurt. Saradis has been making spoon sweets on the beautiful Greek Island of Chios since 1928. Our Sour Cherry Sweets feature hand-selected pitted whole sour cherries suspended in a luscious deep-red syrup. Despite their name, spoon sweets are less sweet and more syrupy than jams or preserves. Swirl a teaspoon of Saradis Sour Cherry Sweets in Syrup into your morning oatmeal or Greek yogurt for a tart-sweet burst of cherry goodness. Serve on French toast, pancakes or waffles with Greek yogurt or crème fraiche for an elegant take on a brunch classic. Use as the basis for a delectable crêpe filling or as a succulent topping on cheesecake. Add our Sour Cherry Sweets in Syrup to ice cream or tart frozen yogurt and you will be in dessert heaven! You will find spoon sweets (Glyka tou Koutaliou, in Greek) in almost every household in Greece.
