The thick juice extracted from the inner seeds of the pomegranate is 100% pure pomegranate molasses. The pomegranate itself is indigenous to Northern India and is found throughout the Himalayas. It has been cultivated over the whole Mediterranean region since ancient times.
When the French developed the hand grenade, they named it after the seed-scattering properties of the pomegranate fruit.
Used mainly in Middle Eastern cooking for its tangy flavor and dark color, pomegranate molasses is becoming more popular than ever throughout the world. Try it with poultry, fish, lamb, pork, vegetables, salads, dips or dressings for an unequaled uniqueness. Makes a nice topping for ice cream and can be made into a refreshing non-alcoholic drink. Mix 1-2 tsp. into soda water. If stored in the refrigerator, it will keep indefinately. Pomegranate molasses equals concentrated pomegranate juice. Do not mistake this molasses with grenadine, which is sweeter.
