Saba is a natural sweetener obtained from simmering Trebbiano and Lambrusco grape must in copper kettles for 24 hours. It is the same grape must used as the base of Balsamic Vinegar, except it is cooked down even more to deeply concentrate the grape sugars. Aged in chestnut and oak barrels for up to 4 years and with notes of ripe grapes, sweet plums and raisins, Saba has a wonderful fruity character.
Top cheese, shaved ice, ice cream or fresh fruit. Sweeten breads and cookies. Drizzle over bean dishes or polenta. Use it over ricotta or yogurt instead of honey. Replace sugar in tomato sauce. Drizzle over cheesecake. Glaze grilled meat or use as a base for marinades.
