pomegranate paste, pomegranate concentrate, pomegranate essence.
This boiled-down pomegranate juice is a key ingredient in many Middle Eastern cuisines. The name "molasses" reflects its thick, syrupy texture and not its flavor, which is nothing like sugarcane molasses. Its intensely sour yet sweet flavor can be a revelation. It especially complements walnuts, as in the classic muhammara dip. It partners well with poultry and lamb too—try adding a touch to your favorite meat marinade. Or just drizzle it over vanilla ice cream.
A Middle Eastern market is your best bet for finding pomegranate molasses.
Once opened, pomegranate molasses lasts almost indefinitely in the refrigerator.
