Pomegranate Molasses

I've been seeing quite a few recipes using Pomegranate Molasses. Is anyone finding it in the stores around them? I have not.

When I looked up a recipe - whew! to bring it down to Molasses consistency is a loong time! Not to mention how many pomegranates you would be using.

In Sweden I can find it Arabic stores and some supermarkets, in the UK I found it at health stores and Arabic stores, maybe there?

Just google it and whole food should have it.

Thanks GG -When I have a list long enough, I sometimes make a trip to America (Malone,NY) to shop. But lately I haven't been traveling unless I really need to. Don't know if they have a Kroger's there although I'm sure it would be easy enough to check but I wouldn't go for just one item.

Thanks to you too CakePoet I will check next time I go to the Asian grocer here. There are quite a few ethnic shops in the area. Not sure if any are Arabic although I would guess that there are some deep in the city - I don't need it that badly to go there! LOL.

If you don't have a Middle Eastern grocery locally, try Pomegranate Molasses at Amazon Canada

LOL... well, from all the leads now posted here (and thank you all!) obviously it is only the back-country North American grocers who are not hip on the latest craze of pomegranate molasses!

OR...

You can easily make your own by cooking down some pomegranate juice, which is available everywhere.

Pomegranate Molasses Recipe

Ingredients:

4 cups pomegranate juice
1/2 cup sugar
2 Tbsp lemon juice

Instructions:

In a large saucepan, heat the pomegranate juice to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium, add the sugar and lemon juice and stir until the sugar has dissolved. Reduce the heat to a simmer, and simmer for about an hour, or until the juice has a syrupy consistency and has reduced to about 1 cup. Pour the syrup into a jar and allow to cool. Store chilled in the refrigerator.

Pomegranates in general only became popular maybe last 10 years or so. I loved them all my life and when I first came to america I could not believe how unpopular they are and how many people have never even tasted them.
