Pomegranate molasses is a syrup produced from boiling and reducing pomegranate juice. It is a key ingredient of Middle Eastern, North African and Mediterranean cooking. It is astringent and tart, yet has hints of sugar. It is normally used to add a sour note to a dish as with lemons, tamarind or sumac. Notice how thick the syrup is, the bottle had been lying down for few minutes before the photo was taken.
It has an almost indefinite shelf-life.
