We are thrilled to bring to the US this limited edition of an age-old traditional preserve. The Rose Petal Spoon Sweet is handmade only once a year, in June, with rose petals from the Greek Magiatiko variety growing on the Greek island of Chios. These roses are so fragrant that they are the natural choice to make a dessert from. The petals are picked in the early morning, before the summer heat strikes, and delicately cleaned before quickly preserving in a simple all-natural syrup of sugar, water, and lemon juice.
Importantly, there are no preservatives, additives, artificial flavors nor colorants.
For foodies with a sweet tooth, Citrus Scent of Memory offers a zestful view into the unique heritage of the Greek island of Chios.
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 ice cream or panna cotta (try Maria’s recipe here), or with scones, in jam tarts (here's Elizabeth's recipe) or atop cheesecake. 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. We love that we can help the team bring the rich history of the Greek island of Chios into a more contemporary, dynamic present here in the States.
