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 flares up, and delicately cleaned. They're then quickly preserved in a simple all-natural syrup of sugar, water, and lemon juice.
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, or with scones, in jam tarts 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.
