I've bought a gorgeous pom/merlot finishing sauce at Chef Central...maybe give them a call? Kings? Wegmans?

It's typically found in most Middle Eastern markets.

It's also quite simple to make at home. In a heavy enameled saucepan, combine 6 cups of pomegranate juice with 1 cup each sugar and freshly squeezed lemon juice. Simmer to reduce to a syrupy consistency - about 1.5 cups. Cool, bottle, and refrigerate.

6 cups of pomegrante juice would be quite pricey.

I do know of a middle eastern store on Summit Ave in Hasbrouck Height, behind the Crows Nest. I'll try there. Thanks!

I know this forum isn't a marketplace, but I carry it in my store. Our website (www.curiouskumquat.com) doesn't allow purchase yet, but you can email me directly if you get desperate. The other thing to consider is that it is often called pomegranate paste, and our brand is Tazah which should be readily available in the Chicago region. All in all, ours is inexpensive and I'd be happy to help you out.

There's a middle eastern store not far from Paramus on Kinderkamack Road called Arak you may want to call them to check. The store is about roughly 1 mile NORTH of Route 4 in River Edge and very easy to get to with a park-in lot.

I double checked and ours is Zarrin brand. My favorite use for this is a meatloaf or roast glaze. We also tried it in martinis...big mistake, but pomegranate JUICE martinis are fantastic! I've been wanting to try it as a layer in a dark chocolate brownie...maybe I'll do that this weekend :)

The International Food Wharehouse in Lodi probably carries it.

I've bought it there twice. They had several brands. I've also seen it at Foodmart International on Route 9. In Queens, Titan Foods has it. And you can get this sort of thing from ethnicgrocer.com.
