I have been searching for the past hour on Lebanese cuisine to see if this ingredient figures anywhere and it does. Use din sauces, sweets, meat marinades and countless other recipes. The BBC site seems to have a few recipes which I shall try and I found one recipe on the net, pan seared chicken with a walnut crust and a pomegranate sauce. Sounds absolutely delicious. I had it here, let me know what you think if you make it before I do!
Chicken in Walnut and Pomegranate Sauce
This is a sweet/tart chicken dish. It can be adjusted to taste by increasing sugar for sweetness and pomegranate molasses for a tarter flavor. The walnuts should be ground so finely that they are almost a paste. If you cannot get pomegranate' molasses,' you can find pomegranate juice in health stores. If using juice, simmer, uncovered, until juice is reduced by two thirds.'
