Pomegranate molasses is made by reducing pomegranate juice into a thick syrup. It is used as a dressing, sauce, or in drinks, tagines, desserts, and more. You will mostly see pomegranate molasses being used in Middle Eastern, African and Mediterranean cooking, usually to give the dishes a sweet and sour taste. This tart, thick, ruby red syrup requires only three ingredients, a bit of effort, and a lot of patience. Here’s how you can go about it.
How To Make Pomegranate Molasses
- 1 liter pomegranate juice
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1/4 cup lemon juice
- To make pomegranate molasses, take a saucepan and pour pomegranate juice, lemon juice, and sugar in it.
- Bring it to boil and then, let it simmer for another hour. Keep stirring it occasionally until it turns a deep red color.
- Turn off the heat. The mixture may be slightly runny, but that's okay as it thickens once it cools down. Let it cool for 30 minutes.
- Pour the molasses into a glass jar and seal it tightly. Use it immediately or store it in the refrigerator.
