Pomegranate molasses is a common ingredient in Middle Eastern dishes and something I ventured into making over the holidays. I am a sucker for molasses, be it black strap or otherwise and after making this, I could drink it straight from the jar it is so tasty! Not only is it delish but it is so versatile and can be used many different ways. It’s easy to make but quite time consuming as you have to let it cook down for a few hours. Worth the time! It has only three ingredients and the finished product is ta-die for!
The Good Stuff:
- 4 Cups Pomegranate Juice
- 1/2 Cup Sugar
- 1 Tbsp Fresh squeezed lemon juice
The Nitty Gritty:
- Put all ingredients in a saucepan and cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally until the sugar dissolves.
- Once the sugar is dissolved, turn stove to med-low and let cook until reduced to about 1 cup (takes about an hour or two) and should be like a thick syrup when finished.
- Can be stored in fridge for up to 6 months but I doubt it will last that long cause it’s so darn good!
Note: I had a great pic of the finished product but it’s stuck in my camera right now and I didn’t want to wait to post anything it’s already been too long! LOL More posts to come with or without pics, I promise!
