Pomegranate molasses makes a wonderfully sweet and tart marinade for grilled poultry and roast pork tenderloin. Brush onto the protein of your choice prior and during cooking.


  • 5 cloves garlic

  • 1/2 teaspoon ground Aleppo chile pepper
  • 8 fresh bay leaves, stemmed and minced
  • 1 bunch fresh thyme, leaves picked (5 tablespoons)
  • 1/4 cup pomegranate molasses
  • 1/4 cup pomegranate molasses
  • 1/4 cup white wine vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

  2. Place the mixture into a bowl and then add the molasses, vinegar, and olive oil. Whisk the mixture until blended and then use immediately.
