Pelion Spoon Sweets
Sweet Spoons or Glyko tou Koutaliou
If you have been to Greece before, you will probably heard of Sweet Spoons or Glyko tou Koutaliou.
You may even have tried them.
This traditional conserved fruit Greek treat is often served to guests and it’s particularly well known in Pelion, between Athens and Thessaloniki.
Here, every home has a jar on the shelf or in the cupboard.
We visit the beautiful community of Vizitsa included in Unesco’s global list of preserved villages with its stone built paths and mansions.
Here we meet the Women Cooperation Esperides in their kitchen and learn all about the tradition as they prepare the sweets for us and other travellers.
And once the lesson is underway we can all get involved.
The local Sweet Spoons are mostly known for the ingredient of baby apples.
The ladies started their shop and kitchen in 2011 with their own savings and are totally dedicated to their craft.
You will find it a delightful experience to meet them and share their love for what they do.
Later there is free time to stroll in the village’s square and paths and then a stop in the main square of Milies to visit the famous church of Pameggiston Taxiarchon.
