Pekmes

Term commonly used in Turkish Cappadocia (also Pecmec, Pekmez) for a honey-like grape syrup made from grape must. In Turkey (mostly after acid extraction) it is used by the rural population as a spread on bread and as a substitute for sugar and honey. A similar product is the Greek sweetener Petimezi. A traditional grape juice drink from Thrace is called Hardaliye.
