Made purely with the juice of pressed plump dates, Odysea date molasses is a caramel coloured, rich syrup with a deep, treacly sweetness and a thick, velvety smooth texture.
Persian semi-soft dates are used for the production of our molasses, lending a full, treacly flavour with a honeyed sweetness. Harvest time for the dates is between early autumn to end of October; dates are picked when semi-dry on the trees while still slightly soft and their colour is just turning from dark amber to caramel brown.
Date syrup or, as often referred to, date honey adds a depth of flavour and complexity to savoury dishes; perfect glazed over BBQ meats, used to dress roasted vegetables or baked into indulgent puddings.
Odysea Date molasses received the highly coveted 3-stars of excellence in this year's Great Taste Awards. "A top product deserving of Three-Star status", “Remarkable and gorgeous” is just how the GTA judges descibed our molasses and even went on to comment "How can something so pure and simple have such depth and nuance?".
Drizzle on top of porridge, yoghurt & ice-cream, blitz in smoothies or use instead of maple syrup on top of pancakes & french toast. Makes a healthier choice as a natural sweetener used in cakes, cookies & energy snacks.
Date syrup is a natural product that may crystallise over time and at cold temperatures. To clear, place bottle in a jug of hot water until crystals dissolve.
