My Homemade Pomegranate Molasses (makes 1 cup)
• 3 cups 100% Pomegranate juice, no sugar added
• 1/3 cup freshly squeezed orange juice
• 1/2 packed cup organic brown sugar
• 1 cinnamon stick + 2 star anise
Combine all ingredients in a medium sauce pan, bring to boil over medium heat, reduce heat to medium- low and simmer, stirring occasionally, until thick and syrupy, for about 1 1/2 hours. Discard cinnamon stick and star anise, cool to room temperature and chill until ready to use. This is an easy way to make a very flavorful pomegranate molasses.

I have found it at Whole Foods grocery stores in the baking aisle.

As a home cook, I find it easier to purchase because I don't cook with it often. Alton Brown via the food network has this recipe though if you want to give it a go: http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/alton-brown/pomegranate-syrup-or-molasses-recipe.html

I buy it. There are several different high quality options at Middle Eastern grocers.

You can make it yourself or buy it at a Middle Eastern grocery store. If you buy it, compare the ingredients on the label to be sure you are getting value for your money--some brands use much more sweeteners than others.
