Where to Find Pomegranate Molasses in DC/Balt/Annapolis Area?

RainyDayLatte Nov 10, 2011 06:35 PM

I have a handful of recipes that I have been wanting to try save for the fact that I cannot locate pomegranate molasses. Anyone have a lead on this? I am willing to travel within the DC/Balt/Annapolis area, but would prefer Annapolis or Balt if possible.

Thanks in advance!

    Look in a middle eastern market or a kosher market.

      I know for certain that Lebanese Taverna Market in Arlington and The Gourmet Basket in McLean each carry this. However, I've got to believe you'll find this essential Middle Eastern ingredient considerably closer to you.

        You can also make your own. If I remember correctly, it is basically concentrated Pomegranate Juice. Add some sugar and simmer slowly until you reach the right consistency. I've done it with store-bought Pom Juice but it would be great with fresh!

          Caspian Supermarket on Route 40 in Ellicott City has it - not exactly Annapolis or Baltimore, but easy to get to.

              My Lebanese Taverna Cafe (Rockville) carries it behind the counter. I know there is one in Annapolis. You may want to call and see if they carry it, or can sell you a bottle.

              If memory serves, my bottle of pomegranate molasses came from the Harbor East Whole Foods.
