My reputation for adoring unique ingredients makes getting gifts for me a breeze. When my friends Brian, Pia, and Linnea attended the Best of the Blue event a couple of weeks ago, they came across three bottles of a chardonnay molasses. They weren't clear about what exactly that was - too many glasses of wine, probably - but they knew they wanted a bottle. And when they gave me a mason jar full, I knew I would incorporate it into our Thanksgiving feast.
I have no idea who made this. I know I won't likely be able to find this again any time soon. So, I'm going to relish creating some tasty dishes with it while I can.
Here are my generous friends who know me so well...
Thanks, guys, the flavor is amazing!
camilla...do you think it is chardonnay grape juice prior to fermentation and cooked down? i am fascinated by this.can't wait to hear what you make with it. Happy Thanksgiving!ReplyDelete
Christy, I think it's from the chardonnay must, but I'm not sure exactly how it's made.ReplyDelete
I found this recipe, which I've made not knowing it was "molasses" - http://agardenerstable.com/2011/11/13/homemade-grape-molasses/ReplyDelete
