Learn how to make this staple ingrediente of Turkish cusine with our special seasonal tour!

Pekmez is a molasses-like syrup made from the boiled down juices of grapes. A staple ingredient of Turkish cuisine, pekmez is used in many dessert dishes and, when mixed with tahini, is a popular breakfast spread. Rich in natural goodness, it's also locally renowned as a cure-all for colds and flu. 

In Cappadocia this vital condiment is still made the old fashioned way, with local women gathering together to boil down the fruit in vast vats. 

During this full day tour you will experience the entire process of making pekmez; beginning with harvesting the grapes from local fields (we will travel there in jeeps) and then watching the pekmez boiling process with local women of the village. The tour also includes a delicious organic lunch with produce picked fresh from our garden and finishes around 16:00 with a jeep ride back to your hotel.

*This tour is only available during the grape harvesting season which is September through to mid- October.

Including: Licensed English speaking guide, Transportation with A/C vehicles, Organicic breakfast and lunch, All taxes
