Common name in Turkish Cappadocia (also Pecmec, Pekmez) for a honey-like grape syrup made from grape must. This is used in Turkey (mostly after acid extraction) by the peasant population as a spread on bread and as a substitute for sugar and honey. A similar product is the Greek sweetener Petimezi. Other products made from grape must are Churchkhela (dessert from Georgia) and Hardaliye (drink from Thrace).

The Wine lexicon helps me to stay up to date and refresh my knowledge. Thank you for this Lexicon that will never end in terms of topicality! That's what makes it so exciting to visit more often.Thorsten Rahn
