After last week’s post on Muhammara, I received a lot of questions about pomegranate molasses. Pomegranate molasses is made by boiling down pomegranate juice to a tart variety, and it is used in many Mediterranean meals including dips, meats and salads. Pomegranate molasses can be puchased in the ethnic aisle of your local grocery stores and can be found in Mediterranean/Middle Eastern markets.
You can also make it on your own using the recipe below. I prefer to make it on my own because I can determine the sweetness of the molasses.
- 4 cups pomegranate juice
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1/4 cup lemon juice
