SWEET OLIVE TREAT
DetailsThe olive spoon sweet is prepared the traditional way with 100% natural ingredients and locally grown olives. Produced in a local Messinian workshop by gently boiling the olives in a syrup made of fresh orange juice, wine, honey, herbs and spices, this authentic recipe combines the classic flavor of the famous Kalamata olives filled with almonds, fresh herbs and honey. It can be enjoyed with soft white cheese, as a salad dressing or as a dessert served with Greek yogurt. In Greece, spoon sweets are offered as a gesture of hospitality, accompanied by a glass of cold water. They are made by gently boiling any kind of fruit that is in season, over several hours or even days, which is why this sweet preserves are said to require “patience and a heavy pot”. 330g/11.64oz Ingredients: kalamata olives, sugar, almonds, honey, spices
