Pomegranate Molasses
« on: January 12, 2012, 11:39:54 am »
Not exactly a condiment or sauce but this seems to be the only place for this recipe.  It is a conversion from this recipe on allrecipes.com.

1 litre pomegranate juice
110 g white sugar
100g lemon juice

Place all ingredients in the TM bowl and cook for 60 mins/varoma temperature/speed 2/MC off.
You will be left with just over 300mls syrup.

I made this from Twitterpated's link in another thread and no problems girls - dead easy. $5.69 for just over 300 mls.

1 litre pomegranate juice
110g white sugar
100g lemon juice

60 minutes/varoma temperature/speed 2/MC off.

This will thicken into a syrupy consistency once it has cooled down.
Store in the fridge.

Posting from Maddy


Well even though I bought a small bottle of Pom. Molasses, I did make some as Judy's conversion.
It really is lovely.....and tasting them both, this home made version trumps  the bought one for sure.
I found the bought one too acidic, and the citric acid came through strongly.


I made a salad vinaigrette using:

2 Tbspn home made Pom. Molasses
2 Tbspn. Mild olive oil
1 Tbspn. White wine vinegar
Salt and pepper

BRILLIANT work girls, I spend so much time chasing it around as the few shops that stock it here run out quickly!

Somebody gave me a bottle of pomegranate molasses for Xmas and I haven't had a chance to use it yet. I was planning to use it  in salad dressings but what would other people suggest?

It' s used also in cakes, icings, marinades etc....it tastes tart but sweet also.....you could add it to anything really.
There's a nice looking cake recipe in the New York Times, I might have a go at it and see  ;)

I was reading "Feast' yesterday waiting for DD to have the CT scan on her knee and found the following in it.

Mix pomegranate molasses with vodka, soda and sugar syrup for a delicious summer cocktail.
Use it as a glaze  on poultry and pork.
Add to a plain sorbet base to create a pomegranate sorbet.


I bought some pomegranate juice today so will try all of the above.

Now you're talking Cookie  ;D  I haven't used my batch at all yet but the cocktail sounds nice.  What did you think of Feast. I bought the December issue No. 4 and wasn't impressed at all  :-))

Thanks for this Judy. I've just made it. It has a sort of sweet/sour taste. Was yours like that?

I actually love reading the articles in it. Sounds like an excuse for buying playboy doesn't it? I've only made a few things from it so far. I'm making some salads from the latest issue on Wedneday for guests.

Yes, mine is sweet/sour Cookie - haven't visited it since I made it and put it in the fridge.  Gee it's nice and syrupy now, must find something to do with it. How long do you think it will last or should I freeze cubes as I know I will never get through this amount.

What is Pomegranate molasses ? Is it like molasses/ treacle that you buy? Sorry for the dumb question but I have no idea.
