help with pomegranate molasses

mark | Sep 1, 200509:53 AM

had a salad dressing recipe that called for pomegranate molasses. this is not an easy ingredient to find in my area (recipe text suggested middle-eastern grocers (don't exist in my area) or health-food stores (i checked our local "green" grocers, but couldn't find it)).

i wound up just buying pomegranate juice, and reducing it to a molasses-like consistency (reduced 1/2C to 1/8C). the dressing was very good (i can post the recipe if anyone's interested), and the "molasses" i made was so tasty the extra was eaten as a glaze over vanilla ice-cream for dessert.

my question is: was what i made close to true pomegranate molasses? if not, am i missing something i should search out? any ideas where to get it?
