Sweet-tart pomegranate molasses is a traditional Middle Eastern syrup used in everything from marinades to dips and stews. It’s also delicious drizzled over your morning oatmeal or stirred in coffee or tea as a sweetener. Be sure to buy 100% pomegranate juice.
Combine pomegranate juice, sugar and lemon juice in a small saucepan. Set over medium-high heat and bring to a simmer. Lower the heat to medium-low and continue to simmer, stirring occasionally, making sure molasses does not boil, until liquid is thick and reduced by about half, 25 to 30 minutes. Let cool completely. Pomegranate molasses will keep in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.
