Delicious sour cherries, vyssino, are the foundation of this traditional Greek fruit preserve. Whole, pitted cherries are preserved, not candied, floating in an all-natural syrup of sugar and water - no preservatives or additives at all, just simple island sweetness. Vyssino is an all-natural alternative to maraschino cherries and are a childhood favorite, whether served as a spoonful on a small plate or in a tall glass of iced water for a special summer treat. Spoon sweets add versatility to your pantry, great as a quick topping on yogurt or ice cream or in your morning oatmeal.
HOW TO USE IT
We love Sour Cherry Vyssino, the most classic of Greek spoon sweets, as a topping for ice creams, cheesecake, flan, panna cotta & yogurt parfait. Add it to your chia pudding or morning oatmeal. Bring a special touch to your crepes, waffles, pancakes and muffins. Head to our blog for a delicious Black Forest Cake recipe or try in a Manhattan cocktail as an all-natural alternative to maraschino cherries.
