How To Make pomegranate molasses

  • 1
    In a 4-quart pot over medium-high, combine all the ingredients. Stir the mixture until the sugar is completely dissolved. Bring the mixture to a boil and then reduce heat to medium-low or medium as long as the mixture is gently simmering for about 1 hour or until it has a “syrupy” consistency, coating the back of the spoon.
  • 2
    Transfer to an airtight container and let it cool completely before closing (the molasses will thicken as it cool off).
