ORNATE SILVER BASKET DESIGNED TO HAVE AN INSERTED GLASS BOWL HOLDING A SYNEPY PRESERVE CALLED A 'SPOON SWEET'; HANDLE HAS CARVED BIRD; SIDES DESIGNED W/ COLUMNS FACES; FOUR FEET ON BOTTOM
Spoon sweets are probaby best described as a cross between a jam and a preseve. Almost any fruit can be used to make them, but those made with tiny whole fruits are the most treasured of all. Spoon sweets made from sour cherries and fragrant citrus blossoms are especially delectable. All of these sweets are excellent with ice cream, pancakes, and surprising as it may sound, with pungent goat's or sheep's cheeses. (From Flavors of Greece)
