Original Recipe


  • 4 cups pomegranate juice
  • 1/3 to ½ cups sugar (for slightly thinner molasses use 1/3 cup, for thicker and sweeter sauce, use ½ cup)
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice


  1. Combine pomegranate juice, desired amount of sugar and lemon juice in a sauce pan over medium-high heat until sauce begins to simmer. Stir until sugar is completely dissolved.
  2. Lower the heat and continue to cook, stirring occasionally, until the mixture is thick and syrupy. At this point there should be about 1 – 1 ¼ cups of the molasses.
  3. Let cool for 25 minutes before use; molasses can be stored up to a month.
  4. To make a marinade, whisk desired amount into olive oil, or simply drizzle over meat or veggies and enjoy!
