Cypriot Dishes - Sweets

Cyprus
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. Products that were plentiful at times and sarce in others, either due to them being out of season or their market value too high could be processsed and used throughout the year. In our days, these products are used both domestically and on an industrial scale forming part of our export trade. These sweets were the first item to be offered to guests with visiting friends and acquiaintances.
