Sadaf Pomegranate Paste ( Molasses )

10 fl oz/300 ml - Lebanon

This pomegranate paste is one of the Top 10 Pantry Ingredients noted in Yotam Ottolenghi's cookbook, SIMPLE.

Long a favorite ingredient in Middle Eastern and Persian cuisine, pomegranate molasses (or paste) is starting to be recognized more and more here for its versatility and the rich, distinct sweet-tart flavors it brings to a wide range of dishes.

Sadaf pomegranate molasses is made from tart pomegranates with a little sugar added to balance the tartness. It is reduced to a thick, molasses-like consistency. Rather than the bright red of the fresh fruit, it's a dark, syrupy mahogany color, sometimes with a slightly grainy texture.

Suggestions for Pomegranate Paste Use:

Traditionally, paste like this Sadaf pomegranate molasses appears more in savory dishes than sweet, adding a tangy, fruity note to dips, spreads, and main dishes of all kinds.

It's a great addition to stir-fries, thickening the sauce and adding its flavor notes. Sadaf pomegranate molasses makes a beautiful salad dressing, particularly when combined with walnut oil.

Tangy and Tasty!
I love this ingredient--I have drizzled it over quinoa, couscous, and rice. It also makes a delicious sauce for chicken or steak when sautéed with red wine, butter, and shallots. Sooo good and a little goes a long way! I've been very getting into pomegrantes this year!
