Q: Some time ago I bought this bottle of grenadine molasses (some type of pomegranate concentrated juice?).
I have it stored in my cupboard without knowing what to use it for — any ideas?

Editor: Jose, what does your bottle of grenadine molasses look like? What does the stuff inside taste like? It is probably identical to pomegranate molasses, which we have some more info on here:
This is a great ingredient that is called for many Persian and Middle Eastern recipes. You can use it in glazes for meat, and for dipping sauces for bread.
It may, however, actually be grenadine syrup, which usually has no actual pomegranate in it, and is used mainly as a mixer for cocktails.
Readers, any help for Jose? Have you ever used grenadine molasses, and is it closer to pomegranate molasses or to grenadine syrup?
