Definitive Issue: Cypriot Dishes - Sweets

Bitter OrangeBitter OrangeCherry

Preserves have always played in integral part in traditional Cyprus hospitality. The preservation of fruit and vegetables with sugar, as the main preserving agent has always been part of home economics especially at the villages.
