Pomegranate syrup

Pomegranate syrup DIY

A real all-rounder in the levantine kitchen
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 1 hour 30 minutes
Total Time: 1 hour 35 minutes
Servings: 300 ml


  • 1,5 L Pomegranate juice 100%
  • 6 Tbsp Sugar
  • 3 Tbsp Lemon juice


  • Mix the pomegranate juice with the sugar and lemon juice in a pot until the sugar has dissolved.
  • Bring the juice to the boil briefly and then turn the heat directly to medium.
  • Simmer the pomegranate juice for approx. 80 - 90 minutes until a syrup is made.
  • Allow the syrup to cool and pour into a sterile container. The syrup will keep in the refrigerator for at least 4 weeks.

Note: It is important that you are there in the last quarter of an hour to check how your syrup is doing. The last few minutes are critical. Every cooker heats slightly differently, so it may take a little longer or a little shorter. Shorter is not a problem - but if the syrup boils down too long, it will turn into caramel (you probably don't want that). If you want to make less than 1.5 litres of juice into syrup, make sure you shorten the time!
