Here you go

Someone had asked how to make lamejun and this was the recipe posted for them. If you read down the comments, which I did not do last night, you can see that pomegranate molasses can be made or you can sub lemon salt...

That recipe is different from the one I used. It would have quite a different flavor. I'll post the recipe for you.

Rose Baboian's Armenian-American Cookbook.

Around here it's considered the 'go to' cookbook for authentic Armenian foods. Rose offered multiple versions of recipes as she understood not everyone made things the same way.

I have a copy but haven't used it much as I have Mom's and sister's recipes.

I used Rose's lamejun recipe because I didn't care for my Mom's (sorry, Ma) and my sister considers this one the best. Now, so do I.

What did you think of the one that I found? Did it lean more towards your mother's, or was it completely different?
From what I found (quickly) last night, it seems like a regional dish.

It's fairly different. Probably because it's an Arabic version of the dish. I always keep in mind that the borders we have today define countries didn't exist back when these foods were created. Nomadic tribes traveled throughout the entire area carrying recipes and new foods with them. So lamejun in Mom's area of Armenia is different from the recipe from the North or South or Turkey or the Arabian peninsula.

I don't have Mom's recipe but it was similar to the one I used. I just don't see the sweetness of the molasses or the fruit flavor as working based on my taste memories of the food. I'm not saying that recipe is no good, just different from what I know.

Andy - the lamejun look delicious and very good. I've never heard of it until now but it looks like something I would like to try. I'll be looking for the recipe.

How wonderful of your daughter to want to have a cooking session with and she picked something that is dear to you. You've made a great memory together.

She is a smart one. She also has my sense of humor.
