A Good Sauce (#102)
Makes 1 quart (about 16 to 20 servings)
3 cups Pomegranate syrup/molasses (found at middle Eastern Stores)
1 to 2 cups water
1/2 cup wine
1/2 pound sugar
1/2 ounce Cinnamon, gound
Combine Pomegranate syrup, water and wine in large saucepan. Dissolve sugar and cinnamon over medium heat and bring to a boil, stirring occasionally. Let simmer over medium heat for 30 to 45 minutes, stirring frequently to avoid scorching.
Serve with roasted meats.
NOTE: If you can find pomegranate juice, you may substitute this for the pomegranate syrup and water. You will need to boil longer to reduce and bring to serving consistency.
