Pekmez or Fruit Syrup

Pekmez is a fruit syrup made from grapes or mulberries that is popular in Turkey. Syrups can be made from many fruits by following the same directions. Making a syrup will make it sweeter and useful in many recipes calling for sugar.


Put grapes or mulberries in the freezer until frozen solid, and then allow to thaw
Crush thawed berries and drain juice through a jelly bag, or push thawed berries through a sieve to remove juice.
Put the juice in a baked enamel, ceramic or pyrex saucepan or casserole dish and place over low heat, covered, and simmer for several hours until liquid is reduced to a syrup. Even better, put over very low, slow heat, such as a slow cooker and allow to slow cook for as long as it takes to reduce down to a syrup.
When cooled, store in small amounts in fridge for immediate use or in plastic bottles in freezer for long term storage or later use.


A tasty syrup can also be made from apples, either whole apples or peels and cores. See Apple Syrup (Sugar Substitute) on the page Apples
