Fesenjoon Sauce

Pomegranate concentrate, a tart, brownish syrup sometimes labeled pomegranate molasses, is made from the fruit's juice but, unlike most concentrates, cannot be reconstituted with water. A staple in Middle Eastern cuisines, pomegranate concentrate is used in meat marinades and fesenjoon, a dip or meat condiment. Try fesenjoon as a dunk for carrots, cucumbers, and pocket bread; spread it in chicken sandwiches; or serve with roast leg of lamb.
