Pomegranate Molasses Recipe

How to Prepare Your Own Pomegranate Molasses
Prep Time5 mins
Cook Time1 hr
Total Time1 hr 5 mins
Course: Sauces
Cuisine: American
Servings: 1 cups


  • 4 cups pomegranate juice
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 1 juice of lemon


  • Combine the pomegranate juice, sugar and lemon juice in a large saucepan and heat over medium-high heat until the sugar dissolves completely.
    Be sure to stir while this is taking place.
  • When the sugar is dissolved, bring the juice to a simmer and reduce the heat enough to maintain a low simmer. Let the syrup cook down for about an hour until it reaches a syrupy consistency.
    If you measure it out in a measuring cup, you would probably end up with about 1¼ to 1½ cups of pomegranate molasses but who's going to measure it out?
  • Remove the pan from the heat and let it cool down for 20 minutes. Pour the molasses into a glass jar and let it cool down completely before putting the lid on and storing in the refrigerator.


It should last in the refrigerator for months but I hope you use it up before then on some grilled fish or chicken. It's really that good!
