Item #: 446

Saba dates back 2000 years to the times of Emperor Augusto. It is prepared by cooking fresh grape must over a slow fire for at least 16 hours until all the sugars have been caramelized and turned to syrup. Whole unshelled walnuts are added to keep the must from sticking to the bottom of the pan.  Saba has an excellent shelf life and can be used in countless ways. It is a wonderful cheese accompaniment, especially when paired with aged Pecorino cheeses and blues. Saba also complements sweet treats like ice cream or cheesecake. If you want to do as the Italians do, you can use it to flavor soda water.
