Recipe for Mahlepi Syrup – Greek Syrup With Mahlepi Spice

Written by in , Comments Off on Recipe for Mahlepi Syrup – Greek Syrup With Mahlepi Spice

Mahlepi is a popular spice that is occasionally used in Greek cooking, particularly in certain desserts and other sweet foods. This syrup is versatile and can be used as a syrup for baklava or kataifi. It can also be used as a syrup for beverages or even over ice cream. You can basically use it however you desire.

Mahlpi Syrup Recipe Ingredients:

  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup honey (Greek honey is best)
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons ground mahlepi

Directions:

Add all the ingredients to a medium saucepan. Set the hat on medium-low and heat the ingredients slowly, stirring constantly with a wooden spoon so the sugar and honey doesn’t burn. Once all the sugar is melted and the honey is dissolved in, raise the heat to medium-high and bring the mixture to a boil. Continue stirring occasionally. Once the mixture boils, simmer it on low for 10-12 minutes or until the mixture thickens. Once this happens, strain the syrup into a clean glass jar using a fine meshed strainer. Make sure the syrup is at room temperature before storing it in the refrigerator. Place the lid on the jar only after the syrup is no longer hot.
