Pomegranate Syrup

4 comments May 5th, 2010 | By | Category: Recipes

Pomegranate Syrup is ideal to season sauces and soups. It has a fruity but slightly acerbic taste that goes well with meat. It is easy to make and stores well in the fridge. It is the end of the pomegranate season but still I could find a few pomegranates to make some syrup.

preparation time: 5 minutes

cooking time: 20-30 minutes

difficulty: easy


  • 4-6 Pomegranates


I cut the pomegranate open and press them through a colander. This also works perfectly with a food mill.

Heat the liquid in a stell pot on low heat. Reduce the liquid slowly, stirring the liquid occasionally. Once the syrup produces large bubbles that do not burst immediately, the syrup is ready.

A simgle pomegranate should provide you with 2 to 3 soup spoons of syrup.

Fill the syrup into a small botlle or cup, cover it and store it in the fridge.

  2. Beautiful photo, Tobias. I’ve made pomegranate syrup several times and it’s as easy as you say! Folks should take care to not let the syrup burn.
