Rose Petal Spoon Sweet is handmade only once a year, in June, with rose petals from the Greek Magiatiko variety grown on the Greek island of Chios. These roses are so fragrant that they are the natural choice to use in this special dessert. The petals are picked in the early morning, before the summer heat flares up, and delicately cleaned. They're then quickly preserved in a simple all-natural syrup of sugar, water, and lemon juice. No additives - just pure rose flavor. Enjoy it alone or as a topping on yogurt, ice cream, desserts, or with a cheese plate.
HOW TO USE IT
We love this rare Spoon Sweet on its own so that we can indulge in its unique, delicate taste and texture. It’s also delicious as a topping on rich, artisanal vanilla or chocolate ice cream, panna cotta or atop your favorite cheesecake. Try the Jam Tarts recipe on our blog for a very special treat. And, of course, you can even enjoy it the traditional Greek way, as a spoonful of sweet luxury with your afternoon coffee or tea.

We chose Citrus for the way they have exalted the rare variety of Chian Mandarin, a PGI product, and for the passion they bring to all of their exclusive small-batch products.
