In French the word pomegranate literally means pome = apple and grenate = many seeds. Although a pomegranate may be vaguely similar to an apple, the difference is soon revealed the moment you bite into one, which is not quite like biting into an apple. The many seeds are annoying and in spite of the many ways there are to de-seed pomegranates, after a while I die of boredom and give up. Personally, I find that the real sense and essence of this fruit is found by extracting its juice.
Now that you know how to easily juice pomegranates, you will find it even easier to make molasses. Pomegranate molasses is a delicious condiment and complement for many recipes. Pour a few drops of this nectar over salads, meats, cheese, fruit, ice cream, panna cotta, scones, muffins and pancakes. You can store it in the fridge for a couple of months or you can freeze small portions so that you have some all year long.
