Glyko Karydaki Recipes

"Glyka tou koutaliou" are sweet preserves served in a tiny spoon as a gesture of Cypriot hospitality.  These spoon sweets are made from unusual fruits and vegetables, like figs, cherries, watermelon peel, walnuts or almond stuffed baby aubergines. They are often flavoured with cinnamon or pelargonium leaves. A wonderful sweet treat enjoyed with a Cypriot coffee or a glass of cold water.
