Description

Pomegranate molasses – or pomegranate syrup – has a fruity sweetness that's countered by a lovely, sharp tart flavour. Most often found in Middle Eastern recipes, and often referred to as dibs rumman, pomegranate molasses is a favourite ingredient in Ottolenghi’s cookbooks – and is included in our Cookbook Set: Jerusalem.

What is pomegranate molasses?

Pomegranate molasses is a treacly-rich fruit syrup made from boiled, reduced pomegranate juice. It is used in savoury and sweet dishes alike. It has the sweet-sourness of tamarind, rather than the pure fruit-richness of sultanas and prunes. Pomegranate molasses is called dibs rumman in Arabic.

How do I cook with pomegranate molasses?

Pomegranate molasses is delicious in everything from salad dressings and the roasted aubergine dip baba ganoush, to fesenjan stewa braised Iranian chicken and walnut dishThe sharpness beautifully complements the oil in salad dressings, and is a good substitute for vinegar or lemon juice - try using alongside hazelnut oil for a rich and rounded dressing.
