I wish I could tell you to get this at your local supermarket! It just is not available commercially, even in Lebanon; my friend Yola got it in the village of Kfarheem (Chouf) and the sale of these jars of grape molasses are strictly for the benefit of the sheikh and his community.
This is the best grape molasses, it has this golden color and a texture similar to thick cream and a sweet taste.
Middle-Eastern, Greek, Turkish markets in the US and Canada sell an industrial version of grape molasses; this one is made in the village press with the best grapes of the season and tastes sweet, of this natural sweetness extracted from the essence of the grape; a magic food filled with every nutrient imaginable.
Delicious mixed with tahini and slathered on bread.
