|Also known as “dessert of the teaspoon” in Greece, they were created hundreds of years ago as a response to the homemakers’ needs to maintain the leftover fruit. They are called “of the teaspoon” because they were used to be offered in small plates and always with a scoop of a teaspoon out of the jar. They’re reminiscent of our childhood years and summer vacations where we used to enjoy a syrup dessert at the traditional cafes, along with cool water and Greek coffee. It is very easy to make as it is comprised of just fruit with the addition of sugar. They offer great energy without the guilt.
