Doctors say that grape molasses has more nutritional value than honey. They also point out that it has a big importance for pregnants, babies and children, as it is rich in calcium and potassium. It’s a great source of energy. Thay say that 200gr molasses is equal to 1550gr milk or 350gr meat in terms of calorie they contain.
Besides having a big effect on bone development (for children), it has also curative effects on anaemia, asthenia, debility.
Molasses is not made from just grapes, it is also made from fig and mulberry. They all have different flavor, but I love grape molasses the most.
In these cold Winter days, what we eat is as important as the ways of getting warm. In Turkey, although most parents try to persuade their children to eat some molasses especially in the morning before going to school, but generally they can not succeed. Children don’t want to eat it as they find it too dense and too sweet. However, there is a very easy method to have them eat this nutritive syrup: Mixing it with tahini!
When you put this grape molasse and tahini mixture before your children, they won’t refuse it, they can even want some more. Dipping a piece of bread into this mixture will make their breakfast indispensable. After eating grape molasses with tahini, when they go out even on a snowy day, they won’t feel the cold.
As we know how it is beneficial for our body, we often give the grape molesses and tahini mixture a priority in our breakfast.
• ½ cup grape molasses
• ¼ cup tahini (sesame paste)
Combine these two very well and eat by dipping bread into this mixture. Then you’ll never feel cold and become more healthy with a very natural energy source.
