  • 4 cups pomegranate juice - fresh or fresh bottled
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 3 tablespoon fresh lemon juice


  • Add ingredients to a medium saucepan set over medium heat. Add the pomegranate juice, sugar, and fresh lemon juice to a wide and uncovered saucepan set over medium heat. Whisk well to combine and bring to a simmer. Reduce to low heat, maintaining a low and steady simmer.
  • Reduce. Simmer, stirring occasionally (to prevent the sugars from burning to the bottom of the pan), for approximately 60 minutes, or until the mixture has reduced to approximately 1.5 cups and has reached a sticky, syrupy consistency.
  • Store. Transfer the prepared pomegranate molasses to a clean jar with a tight-fitted lid. Allow it to cool before refrigerating.


  • Pomegranate molasses may be stored in the refrigerator for up to 2-4 months.
