Mark Hargreaves Posted July 24, 2014 Share Posted July 24, 2014 Hi! I'm looking at eating out with a friend I get to see maybe once a year and looking at a fairy nice Italian restaurant. They have an appetizer that is drizzed in saba (an ingredient completely new to me). The internet tells me it's grape must, slowly cooked down into a syrup which allows the sugars to caramelize. Obviously this is not something to be consumed in excess, but as a drizzle over a salad, it seems like it would be compliant as long as no sugars are added or sulfites used to preserve it (though it will obviously have natural sulfites from the grapes). I've emailed the restaurant to verify that neither of these are true. http://www.wisegeek.org/what-is-saba.htm Am I thinking correctly on this? Thank you!
