Product History
Jams are ideal for breakfast or for afternoon tea, as a topping on yogurt or ice cream, as filling in delicious tarts and as a topping on pancakes with a mediterranean scent. In earlier times, when there were no refrigerators to preserve an entire crop of fruit, the part of the crop that could not be consumed immediately was turnt into jam. Today, use of excess crop is an expression and token of our ecological consciousness. The nutritional value of jams is also important as they constitute a unique source of energy, They contain simple sugars that are absorbed quickly by the body and depending on the fruit, they contain their respective vitamins.

Goumenisses

Dimitra Dartsi is the initiator, founder and creator of "Goumenisses". Born and bred in this region, she is well acquainted with the local products and taste traditions. She has also learnt to share the efforts of the people and their love for the land. Family- recipe secrets, sweet presentations and her love for tradition have all inspired her to bring homemade delights to the shelves in shops. This is how the home-based business "Goumenisses" was founded in the village named "Griva", on mount Paiko. Production starts in May, when the land generously offers its fruit, and ends in February, thus adequately covering consumers' needs for a whole year. Spring fruit, August vegetables, winter chestnuts and quinces are cooked in their respective season in the traditional way, and are packed with care, without the addition of preservatives or alternative additives. Motivated by their love for excellent flavour and the high nutritional value of traditional cuisine, the women of Goumenisses cook as they would at home. Their utmost ambition is to be made known and to be included in the list of international cuisines.

Goumenissa

In the heart of Macedonia, between two valleys, right where the prefectures of Pella and Kilkis are joined, rises mount Paiko, with its highest peak reaching 1.650 metres. Although it seems to be lacking in height, it most definitely stands out for its beauty. Dense areas of beech trees, oak and chestnut trees and lush vegetation, are split by rivers and fast-rushing streams going through, composing a wonderful and natural landscape. Known for its springs, Paiko is a fertile mountain that is perfect for fruit and vine growing. It is also famous for hosting the biggest chestnut tree forest in Greece. With a strong local character, stone-built houses and watermills, Goumenissa is home to a friendly population and it stands out for its culinary events, such as the "Chestnut Festival".
