Pomegranate syrup, sometimes known as "Pomegranate Molasses", has nothing at all to do with molasses.
Pomegranate syrup is just that - a thick, syrup-like reduction made from concentrated pomegranate juice and sugar.
Pomegranate syrup has a unique, sweet-tart flavor and deep red color like Cabernet Sauvignon. Like a full-bodied red wine, its complex sweet and sour flavors lush fruit, balanced with just the right amount of acid. Pomegranate syrup is best known as an ingredient in Middle Eastern dishes, but it can add depth and complexity to many dishes and it's a handy addition to any creative cook's pantry.
Legendary cookbook author Paula Wolfert, writes "Pomegranate molasses is an essential ingredient...has a wonderful flavor and a heady aroma, and its thickness and dark color make food look very appealing. It keeps almost indefinitely in the refrigerator. The uses for this thick, tangy, piquant syrup are many. It blends well with walnuts, adds a tart and pungent flavor to beans, sharpens the taste of poultry, gives a clean, tart taste to fish, gives an astringent edge to salads and vegetables, and is a great tenderizer for lamb and pork. It can also be diluted and used for sharp drinks and tart sorbets."
