Saba di Modena is the deliciously sweet cooked and caramelized reduction of unaged grape must, the same grape must used for balsamic vinegar. It’s made from hand picked, sun-ripened Lambrusco and Trebbiano grapes in Modena, Italy. Simmered in copper kettles over an open flame for several hours until it becomes a smooth, thick, amber-tinted syrup, it boasts a lovely, complex flavor redolent with notes of honey, fig, and sundried raisins.
There were ancient writings that noted a liquid much like balsamic called Saba, which came from the Greco, Roman, and Egyptian periods, was primarily used for sweetening just about anything. It’s making a modern-day comeback in fine dining establishments in a multitude of ways.
Use it to glaze vegetables, meats, and poultry; with cheese plates (magical with figs and marscapone cheese, a nice Brie or a robust Parmigiano-Reggiano). You’ll love it drizzled over ice cream, fresh fruit, cheesecake, yogurt, cakes, and pancakes.
