Saba is an ancient sweetener, used extensively in Italy since the times of Ancient Rome. It is basically the cooked down grape must that has been cooked for longer than balsamic vinegar, so it is much more condensed in flavor. It is then aged for a short time to add complexity to the finished product. It was the poor-man's sweetner in the old dayswhen sugar was much more expensive. Now, you can try this fine Saba anytime, on rice, soup, cooked fruit and vegetables, ice cream, yogurt and other appetizers.
