Pomegranate Molassas (Robb-e-Anar) is a tart flavored thick syrup made from concentrated pomegranate juice and often combined with sugar and fresh lemon juice. It is most widely used for making fesenjoon stew (chicken and ground walnuts). Pomegranate Molasses can also be used as a beverage flavoring – simply add one tablespoon of molassas plus one tablespoon of sugar to a glass of still or sparkling water. Add a shot of vodka and a slice of lime for a delicious and refreshing cocktail!
You can purchase pomegranate molassas from any Persian, middle eastern or ethnic store. Or buy online from Sadaf priced at $2-$5 per bottle.
