Traditional Grape Recipes

“Al-Khabeesah” is one of the most famous Hebron deserts, that is made of a mix of grape juice, with semolina flour and nuts. Where, all members of the family meet together, to share the happy moments of making and eating such a seasonal desert.

My cousins and aunt are moving the mixture, after adding semolina to the grape juice.

My father is adding almond nuts to the mixture.

And here, they are pouring “A-lkhabeesah” into a smaller pot to be poured for eating.

It is ready for eating.

And after cooking “Alkhabeesa”, sometimes it is dried by sunshine, to be what is called “Malban”, as shown in the following photo.

Another traditional grape recipe is grape molasses, that is made in larg quantities by septemper; when grapes are harvested, and consumed during the year.

Molasses is made of grape juice, using these big copper pots.

And here are different types of Raisins, dried using sunshine, it is really mouth watering!
