Delicate Asian pears, roasted to an intensely deep flavor, then broiled to give them a tangy glazed Pomegranate Molasses top. Sprinkled with toasted, chopped pistachios, Pomegranate Glazed Roasted Asian Pears have got everything the perfect Fall dessert needs to be fabulous!
I absolutely love this recipe! Not only is it a fast and easy dessert, it can also be partially prepared ahead of time.
Now let’s take a minute to talk about the secret ingredient that makes this one of my fabulous Rosh Hashanah desserts!
This is truly a gift from Mother Nature herself! I love Homemade Pomegranate Molasses so much, I eat it off a spoon like a lollypop!
It’s intensely flavorful, tangy and sweet, all at the same time. Because I’m absolutely addicted to this stuff, I have it around all year long.
I used to have to buy a bag full of fresh pomegranates at the end of each season, but now you can buy the juice any time you want. And that makes Nan one happy camper!
One caveat though, fresh juice will make a brighter, less brown finished molasses. While it’s much prettier to look at, it doesn’t taste any different, and juicing the pomegranate ariels is time consuming.
And in all honesty, I can’t seem to do the job without staining my clothes, kitchen towels and hands! That’s why I’d just assume grab a big bottle of pomegranate juice from the produce department of my grocer’s.
It super simple to make, you really just cook down pomegranate juice, lemon and sugar. It takes over an hour to cook down to a molasses thickness.
So, I usually pop it on the stovetop while I’m busy in the kitchen doing something else. That way I can monitor it’s progress, as most of the cooking time is hands-off.
