Not only are these candied orange peels deliciously unique, it’s also a great way to make sure nothing goes to waste while still taking advantage of the season. Of course, you could use this technique for any citrus, including grapefruit, lemons, and limes. Chocolate-dipped candied orange peel (also known as orangettes) are a lovely holiday confection!

The Mykonian onion pie is a special dish, which combines the onion together with local cheese of Mykonos t'rovolia ( tyrovolia )

It's about my proposal for a surprisingly delicious pie stuffed with onions, cheese full of chard and dill aromas. The recipe that I have years from both my Mykonian grandmothers and I make it whenever I save some t'rovolia from Mykonos as my family goes crazy for that. This pie is very healthy and it 's an excellent snack for children in school. Accompanied by a fresh season salad, may become a main course. If you cannot find t'rovolia, you can use any white cheese you like.

Tyrovolia : Soft white cheese with a long history on the island of Mykonos , as it's used in most traditional pies . It is fresh and unsalted.
