This is traditional Greek spoon sweets this can be ranked on the top of the list as the best. June 24 happens to be St John’s day and tradition has it that the green walnuts must be picked on this day, but in reality it depends where you live.The important thing is that the walnuts are not only green, but still tender and no woody.For this recipe you need some time, but it’s something really special.Handling the nuts you should always wear gloves otherwise your hands will go black!We like this traditional spoon sweets for the breakfast like a jam (for example on my Zopf or Braided Bread Zopf or Braided Bread) and we like the syrup especially on plain yoghurt.
