Preserved fruits or Glyka Tou Koutaliou (Spoon Sweets), are the most iconic treat in Greek culture. The ancient Greeks used honey to preserve quinces, instilling a centuries-old tradition of fruit preservation in the sun-kissed lands of Greece. The fruit is preserved when slightly underripe (whole, or in pieces) in a syrup of sugar and lemon juice. There’s no lighter, or more satisfying way to end a meal than a few pieces of  syrupy fruit on creamy Greek yogurt, ice cream, or on its own to balance a cup of strong coffee. Small mandarins from the Ilia region of the Peloponnese are preserved whole to make this fabulous spoon sweet; each bite is a burst of sweet, fragrant citrus flavor.
