Thermomix Pomegranate Molasses
The pomegranate is known to be quite symbolic in some cultures. My grandmother always talks about how it symbolises new beginnings, eternal life and abundance. Some believe that eating the pomegranate seeds will bring good luck to marriage and could support fertility.
To make the pomegranate molasses I first use these Thermomix instructions to peel my pomegranate and make the juice. Then I continue on with the recipe in the Salad Collection cookbook to make the molasses.
