Into a tall air tide flask put in 1 ½ cup hand crushed Pomegranate, 1/3 cup white sugar and 600ml high percentage Alcohol, put the lid on and keep it in a place which is dry and in room temperature and start to drink after a month.
To make Molasses
10 cups of Juice put in a deep pan and boil it on medium to high heat around 20 minutes meanwhile remove the scum up and stir frequently. After 20 minutes reduce the heat to low and let it boil until the juice become slightly thick and the juice reduced to 2 cups, stir it frequently, it took me around 1 ½ hours.
After move the pan from the heat and let it cool down, after cooling down put it into a jar and keep it in the fridge or room temperature. With this you can make marination for various dishes.
To make Jam
500g Pomegranate seeds, 200g white Sugar and a Star Anis put them in a pan and let it boil on medium heat, stir to help to dissolve the sugar easily. After all dissolves reduce the heat to low and let it cook until it becomes slightly runny and sticky at the same time it takes around 35 to 40 minutes.
