Fig molasses (or sykomelo in Greek) is our new favourite product! We generally love all types of molasses as they add a discreet sweetness and depth to all of our dishes-have you tried our grape molasses?
With fig season in its full swing, we are all inspired to create lovely recipes with this amazing product. We recently made a very nutty Greek granola, with fig molasses, tahini, walnuts and dried figs. Absolutely yummy!
This week we decided to go for something on the savoury side. So we are making a dressing. We love making dressings, especially using interesting ingredients: enter fig molasses.
This dressing is delicious on a green salad. It is also perfect with grilled manouri and seasonal fruit.
And of course, it is great with roasted vegetables. Grill or fry some aubergine, smother them in this dressing, sprinkle some parsley and feta cheese and you’ve got yourselves a delicious summer dinner. And for the meat eaters amongst us, this makes for a wonderful marinade for beef. Simply marinate the beef for a few hours and your summer barbecue will be glorious!
This quantity is enough for 2 people, so if you are preparing food for more, multiply accordingly.
In a bowl whisk together the fig molasses and balsamic vinegar. Slowly add the oil, whisking until emulsified. Season with salt.
