This kind of desserts is called ?Spoon sweet? because they are served in a spoon as a gesture of hospitality. They were served with the Greek coffee when a friend or acquaintance was visiting the house.
The sour cherries are carefully selected and boiled without water, but in syrup and preserved in this. They are traditionally made, cooked in small copper pots, just like our grandmothers used to make them. They can also be served on cakes, in crepes, with ice-cream, on your cereal or plain.
