Spoon sweets – citrus peels, whole fruits, nuts, vanilla or mastic gum in sugary syrup – have had a special place in Greek, Turkish, Balkan and Russian culture since the Ottoman Era. Offered to visitors as a sign of welcome and hospitality, spoon sweets are traditionally served in a 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 Orange Sweets feature large peels of ripe, hand-picked oranges suspended in delectable syrup. Chewy, juicy and not too sweet (despite the name!) our Orange Sweets are the “perfect bite” on a teaspoon. Rich in flavor and less dense than classic marmalades, they are delicious with scones, biscuits and cornbread. If you cut the orange peels into small pieces and serve with their syrup, the culinary applications of Saradis Orange Sweets will become more manifest! For a delightful citrusy spin on a brunch classic, serve them on French toast, pancakes or waffles with a dollop of Greek yogurt, mascarpone or whipped ricotta. For an elegant, citrus-forward baked brie, spread our Orange Sweets in the center of the cheese before baking. Use as a sauce for Crêpes Suzette sauce – or as a succulent orange glaze on roasted ham or duck – and your family and friends will thank you! You will find spoon sweets (Glyka tou Koutaliou, in Greek) in almost every household in Greece.
