Honouring Yiayia Aspasia Lathouris
Thermomix Grape Spoon Sweet – Stafyli Gliko
The first time my yiayia Aspasia made stafyli gliko, it was a disaster. This is her story exactly as she told me:
“I found a box of grapes at the fruit market and it was only $5 for the whole box. I took it home to make a gliko the same way that my mother-in-law used to do. She had passed away by then so I didn't have a recipe to follow. They say you only need a cup of sugar for a cup of grapes, but no one told me how much water to add, so I just filled it up to the top. The bloody thing came out like a soupa. Now I know that there is enough water in the grapes. All the liquid comes out when the pot heats up on the stove. Back in those days we didn't have the computers to tell us what to do. We had to learn from our mistakes.
The full recipe for Stafyli Gliko is exclusively featured in our cookbook MEZZE. For that reason, the quantities and steps are not listed in this blog post. However we have provided a list of ingredients to help you with your shopping list and meal planning (especially helpful if you use the paprika recipe app) and also some Thermomix cooking tips.
Here is a list of ingredients you will need to make this recipe.
- lemon juice
- vanilla powder or vanilla extract
THERMOMIX COOKING TIPS
- Either red or green grapes can be used.
