Today, I am happy to introduce you to Dolcedi (pronounced dol-che-dee), a new all natural, low-glycemic alternative to sugar made from 100% organic apples and with 25% fewer calories than table sugar and 0% shortage on taste! Rigoni di Asiago, a family-owned & operated company based in Northern Italy (90 miles north of Venice), makes Dolcedi from the concentrated and filtered sugar extracted from organic apples. It is certified USDA organic, non-GMO, gluten-free, vegan and STAR-KOSHER. So, how does it taste, you might want to know?!? I decided to try it as a substitute for honey in a kale salad recipe that calls for 1/4 cup of extra virgin olive oil, 1/4 cup honey, the juice of one lemon and a pinch of kosher salt. I loved the fact that the Dolcedi didn't have the stickiness of honey and provided just the right amount of sweetness. I actually prefer the Dolcedi to honey and will use this from now on when making this salad. It's also great in tea or anything you would normally use sugar or sweetener on. Dolcedi is available in stores nationwide in a 12.34 ounce squeezable bottle with a dripless cap. For more info, you can visit their website.
Until we eat again...
I send you delicious wishes, xo
