Slatko meens sweet in several Slavonic languages. In this case it would be Serbian. It is a super sweet fruit preserve which was traditionally used to welcome guests to your house. Everybody would get a tea-spoon and have some Slatko still at the door.
Although we never make our own Slatko at home, we always have it in our pantry. Because of the huge amount of sugar that goes into it it can keep for ages (don't worry, the amounts you eat in one go are really small). It is like honey with fruits for me. BUT, if you are not lucky to have Slatko readily available at the store or at the market, check out this beautiful recipe for Strawberry slatko. It is so simple to make, and with minimal ingredients. You should try it out, learn something new!
