Halkidiki produces a variety of fruits, but it is most famous for its apricots from Portaria village, eaten fresh or as a marmalade or even spoon sweet. Quince is another favorite. It is served as a sweet puree or grated and mixed with almonds; it’s also used for sweetening chicken and pork casseroles.
