Homemade Pomegranate Molasses



I am excited to start this fun little Holiday Series; “Fresh4Five’s Homemade for the Holidays“. I plan to spend the next couple of weeks sharing recipes that would make fantastic homemade gifts for friends, family and hosts alike. Giving someone something you took the time to make yourself is always a thoughtful touch. It just makes the gift that much more personal.


Homemade Pomegranate Molasses is a versatile little gem to have on hand in your fridge. I’m going to show you 4 different ways to use it over the next 2 weeks, so be sure to bookmark this recipe as it will be the base for recipes to follow, including: {Holiday Cocktail}Tequila Sunrise , {Holiday Appetizer} Sticky & Sweet Turkey Meatballs, {Holiday Brunch} Holiday Mimosa, {Holiday Dessert} Poached Pears


Have you ever made your own fresh pomegranate juice? It is super simple. You basically just put the seeds in your food processor and then press the pulp through a fine sieve. The seeds can be easily removed from the fruit in a bowl of water. The seeds will sink to the bottom and all of the white bits will float to the top, making it easy for you to scoop out. The water also helps prevent your hands and counters from being stained by the beautiful ruby red colour of the pomegranate fruit.


Once you have pomegranate juice, combine it with pure maple syrup and orange juice in a sauce pan. Simmer until it is reduced to about 3 cups. You will need 6 cups of juice (the juice of 8 pomegranates)  or you can use store bought to save time.

Once it has cooled slightly, you can pour it into a decorative bottle or jar; it stores in the fridge for up to 6 months.  I packaged mine up with a little decorative holly, ribbon and gift tag.

I shared this recipe with: Slightly Indulgent Tuesday, Fat Tuesday, Gluten Free Wednesday, Allergy Free Wednesdays, Pennywise Platter, Whole Foods Friday, The Wellness Weekend

  2. Hi. Awesome site. I wanted to ask, though, where did you
    get hold of the theme? Or did you make it your-self?

    Thanks again.
