Giuseppe Giusti Saba 250 ml

Saba! Back after a very long absence. It's been years since we were able to offer a good quality and reasonably priced Italian Saba. Cooked grape must, called “Saba”, is the beginning for the production of Balsamic Vinegar of Modena. Already in use at the time of the ancient Romans, it was and is obtained by cooking in open air must of local grapes for many hours, reduced down to a sweet and dense liquid. Appreciated especially by children, Saba is versatile, enhancing various ingredients and recipes. 

This cooked grape must (grape must sugar) is an amazing sugar to have on hand at home. Using it in everything from salad dressings, vegetable saute, sweetening home made dark bread dough, adding to vinegar to make home made balsamic vinegar, to mixing with sparkling water or use in cocktails. Urban legend has it that it may very well have been the first sugar poured over crushed ice as the first snow-cone.
