Pomegranate Molasses is a middle eastern dressing for salads and can also be used as an ingredient for marination of meatsPomegranate Molasses has been one of my favorite dressing to use up for salads. I was introduce to this delicious molasses when we ordered Fattoush on our lebanese food exploration. The tangy flavored with a bit of sweetness had us hooked to this salad and has become a regular in our daily meals.
The recipe to prepare Pomegranate Molasses is easy but a little time consuming. As we need to decrease the juice to 2 thread consistency. I mostly take about 3 to 4 big size pomegranates. These red pearls are removed from the fruit and later pulsed 3 to 4 times in a blender taking care that its seeds are not crushed. Later it is sieved using a cheese cloth. Addition of sugar depends on the sourness of fruit. I started with 1/3 cup of sugar and ended with half cup. My pomegranates were too sour. Salt is added to balance the flavor. I have used Himalayan Pink salt but normal salt can also be substituted.
