What are some uses for pomegranate molasses?

I recently bought a bottle of this stuff on a whim. I have made chicken with it, used it in salad dressing, and drizzled it over cauliflower and tahini. It was served to me at a restaurant as well recently, drizzled over cubes of pineapple sprinkled with lime zest--and gave the pineapple just the barest hint of tang. I would love some other ideas though!

Muhammara is my favourite use for it. It's a dip with walnuts and roasted red peppers, and it's delicious!

I made these Bobby Flay brussels sprouts with a pomegranate molasses sauce a few years ago for Thanksgiving, and I really liked them: http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/bobby-flay/roasted-brussels-sprouts-with-pomegranates-and-vanilla-pecan-butter-recipe/index.html

Here is a recipe for baked ham (I am making this for a party on Sunday) It sounds wonderful:

If you make homemade cranberry sauce for the holidays add some pomegranate molasses to it, doubles the tang. its delicious.
Its used in some Middle Eastern dishes so you might want to research that. I make an Iranian dish with duck, walnuts and pomegranate molasses.
