Pomegranate Molasses is used in many different world cuisines, as an ingredient, as a sauce, or as an accompaniment to a dish. While called a “molasses” the term really refers to its consistency.
Try it in a barbecue sauce. Cook some onion and garlic in red wine and add some pomegranate molasses and cumin. Pomegranate molasses stirred into a little ketchup along with olive oil and rosemary makes a great glaze for salmon. Pomegranate molasses, soy sauce, and chili paste makes a great dipping sauce for pot stickers. Try mixing pomegranate molasses, honey, a good balsamic vinegar, and extra-virgin olive oil for a great salad dressing. We like it on pancakes or ice cream!
