Cretan Petimezi

Cretan petimezi emanates from condensation of grape must coming from exceptional and mature Cretan grapes. It has splendid aroma and flavor. It is a product made with traditional way and is used as sweetening substance in traditionally homemade sweets, in pancakes, in doughnuts and others. It is most excellent syrup for all kinds of ice-cream. This product was used by our ancestors as thermal means in the period of the war, but also as sweetening substance in the pastry making when people could not afford buying sugar because of the high price.

      The traditional Syrup of Grape (grape molasses) can be used from modern cooks in proportion 1:1 instead of sugar in the all sweets, even in bread with butter, while it is also the basic component for the traditional sweets made from fruits named retselia.
