Apple Pomegranate Sauce

Pomegranate molasses gives this delicious apple sauce an extra sweet and tart kick.


3 pounds tart apples, such as Granny Smith, peeled, cored and roughly chopped (about 8 cups)

⅓ cup pomegranate molasses

1 cinnamon stick

1 large strip orange zest


  1. In a 4-quart saucepan over medium heat, combine the apples, pomegranate molasses, cinnamon stick, and orange zest.  Stir well to combine.
  2. Cook, uncovered, for 20 to 25 minutes, stirring occasionally.  The apples will break down and become brown in color; some apple chunks should remain.
  3. Remove the cinnamon stick and orange zest and cool.  Store in an airtight container for up to 1 week or freeze for up to 3 months.
