Palouzes is one of the most popular traditional Cypriot sweets. It looks like a pudding and it is made out of grape juice and flour and flavoured with different spices and aromas like rose water, mastic, vanilla to name a few. The best time to enjoy palouze is September-October when the grapes are sweet making it a beloved autumn treat among Cypriots. Considered to be a very healthy snack full of antioxidants and vitamins A, B and C, you can enjoy it warm or cold along with some crushed nuts (usually almonds) on top. Palouzes is also the primary ingredient of another traditional sweet, the shoushoukko. Shoushoukko is actually a dessert made of whole nuts (almonds / walnuts) covered in palouze.
