Notes

Pomegranate molasses is not molasses at all but a syrup made from concentrated pomegranate juice and sugar. It is popular in Middle Eastern cuisine. Its intense flavor is sometimes compared to balsamic vinegar and, just like balsamic, a little goes a long way. Pomegranate molasses can be found in specialty food stores, big-box stores, and Middle Eastern groceries.
