Strawberry & Grape Molasses Sorbet

Recipes |

A few weeks ago we hosted our Greek Islands dinner experience, and it was quite a feast! Thank you to everyone who attended! As promised to our guests, and to all of you who have been in touch, over the summer we will be sharing the receipes that Nafsika prepared for the evening.

This week we’ve got the most refreshing, vibrant and delicious summer dessert for you. A sorbet made with British strawberries, lemons and a secret ingredient: grape molasses! British strawberries are at their best this time of the year, and it’s the perfect time to make this strawberry sorbet.

Grape molasses, known as petimezi in Greece, is an absolute favourite ingredient. It is 100% natural, made from concentrated Agiorgitiko grape must, with distinct caramel tones and aromas of light honey and fresh grapes. It adds depth to this refreshing sorbet, and don’t forget to drizzle more on top!

Serves 8


1kg strawberries
200g sugar
240ml lemon juice
30ml grape molasses, plus more to serve
Zest from 1 lemon
Roasted pistachios (to serve)



In a food processor add the strawberries, sugar, and grape molasses. Blend everything together.

Add half of the lemon juice and blend again until smooth. Taste and slowly add the remaining lemon juice, a couple of tablespoons at a time, tasting as you go along. You may use a bit less. How much you use will depend on the sweetness of the strawberries, but we found that these quantities work well. You need to be left with a balanced mixture, on the lemony side and not too sweet.

Once you are satisfied with the taste, place the mixture in an ice cream maker and follow the instructions. Alternatively, pour it into a freezer-safe container and place it in the freezer for 45’. Remove from the freezer and blend again until smooth. Return to the freezer. Repeat this process every 45’, until the sorbet is frozen and creamy. By blending it often you ensure that no crystals remain.

Serve with chopped roasted pistachios and more grape molasses.
