Eggplant/aubergine is usually considered a vegetable, but in the Greek tradition eggplants are also popular in the form of a sweet, called spoon sweet, served with coffee. For the preserve, a specific eggplant cultivar is used, that produces mini eggplants with less flesh and a thick skin, appropriate for the boiling process that turns it into a preserve. Enjoy this traditional dessert on its own, as a decoration on cakes or other sweets, or use your imagination, once you try it, you will not be able to resist to its taste. Aubergine preserve is very popular in Cyprus and Niki's "vazanaki" (aubergine in Cyprus) sweet is a wide known brand of traditional quality sweet preserves.
