Pekmez (Turkish: pekmez, from Oghuz Turkic bekmes) or dibs (Arabic) is a molasses-like syrup obtained after condensing juices of fruit must, especially grape, fig or mulberry, by boiling it with a coagulant agent. It is used as a syrup or mixed with tahini for breakfast.
Pekmez is well known and made in the Balkans, though it is more jam-like in texture in some countries. In Greece, it is called πετιμέζι (petimézi).
Keçiboynuzu pekmezi is popularly recommended as a treatment for iron deficiency anemia in Turkey.
