Organic Petimezi (8.5 oz)

Wisdom of Nature


Wisdom Of Nature's Petizmezi is produced from Agiorgitiko grapes. It is a 100% natural sweetener and contains no additives or preservatives. It has an aroma of light honey and fresh grapes.

Petimezi is made by reducing grape must (mousto) into a concentrated syrup. It is one of the world's oldest sweeteners and an exceedingly healthy one at that. It is rich in antioxidants, vitamins A, C, and B, and minerals such as potassium, iron, calcium, and magnesium. Our bodies metabolize the natural sugars in petimezi easily, too.

Recipe Ideas

Petimezi (also called grape must/molasses) is a natural sweetener that can be used in place of balsamic vinegar in salad dressings, marinades, and sauces as well as with meat and bean stews or to caramelize meat and poultry. It pairs beautifully with aromatic tomato sauces, warm spices such as cinnamon, cloves, and nutmeg, and even with dark chocolate or just over ice cream.

Unique grape flavour!

This syrup has a fruity flavour and I used it in place of vinegar in simple olive oil and vinegar dressing. I added some thyme, sea salt and fresh ground pepper and it was a delicious change from wine vinegar. I also plan to use it as a drizzle on fresh sliced strawberries!
