Symbol of Greek hospitality, spoon sweets, as they are named, are made mainly of fruits, nuts and vegetables with sugar and just a bit of lemon juice. The sweets can be oranges, melon, watermelon, strawberries, grapes, figs but also unripe walnuts and baby aubergines, and many many more which are gently boiled in water with sugar, in slow heat, for long hours until they the liquid part becomes a syrup. Roasted blanched almonds are also added for a tastier experience and extra aroma. The outcome is similar to marmalade except that spoon sweets consists of whole fruits or big pieces and not a mash of them.
