Moustalevria (μουσταλευριά) or moustopita (μουστόπιτα) is a sort of pudding made of grape must mixed with flour and boiled until thick. It may also include almonds, walnuts, and other nuts. Grape must is the juice from pressed grapes before fermentation, and is often used as a sweetener in traditional bread recipes, as well as in the preparation of desserts and candy. This grape must pie is a favorite, especially popular at grape harvest season when the must is fresh. When the pudding solidifies, it takes on the appearance of a hard jelly. Moustalevria can be air-dried under the sun to turn it into a hard chewy candy which can be stored for a long time in a cool place. This was done in the past to preserve seasonal for harder times (eg winter).
