TRADITION

Greece has always been an agricultural
country and as such, it produces a lot of fruits. Many times there was a
surplus of fruits, so housewives used the freshest of them to produce sweet
spoons. These desserts have been very popular for many years especially up to
the middle of 20th century, before other materials were imported in the
country. It was the custom to treat a visitor with a small amount of this dessert
together with a cold glass of water. Housewives used a silver tray with a
handmade dandelion. They put a small glass dish on it and served the sweet
spoon.

Sweet spoons are fresh fruits boiled in
sugary water, sometimes including nuts to the end product. The usual analogy is
1kg of sugar to 1kg of fruit. There are a lot of techniques to be used
depending on the fruit’s acidity, bitterness, ripeness or regional habits.
Depending on the season, they used bergamots, cherries, figs, aubergines,
oranges etc to produce it. Housewives even used the outside of walnuts and the
watermelon skin. Each of them has a special flavour and it’s worth trying!
