Grandma Ines’s Flavor

Sapore di Nonna Ines

Typical peasant recipe from the Rivara region near Modena, made from sugar beets. It was prepared in the period between the sugarcane harvest and the preparation of the land for the sowing of grain. It was a traditional snack for children.

Ingredients: 10 liters of sugar beet molasses, 4 kg of apples, 2 kg of pumpkin.

Preparation: The first day prepare the molasses by washing the sugar beets, then grating them and putting them through a grape press. The second day, at dawn, pour the molasses into a copper pot, let it boil until half of it evaporates and then add the apples and pumpkin, peeled and cut into chunks. Cook slowly until it has reduced quite a bit. In the evening, around 11 pm, you can put it into jars.
