Preserved Fruits & Spoon Sweets
Mediterranean fruit preserves are sweet and syrupy and often include whole fruits in the jar. They are available in a wide variety of flavors from sour cherry and bitter orange to walnut and pistachio. They can be used as toppings on cakes, pies and ice cream or scooped unto a spoon and enjoyed on their own. Eaten on their own, these "spoon sweets" are a uniquely Mediterranean treat.
