[Sca-cooks] Pomegranate Molasses

Did some checking, Old Orchard, which I drank until Publix stopped stocking, 
gets concentrate from Turkey and the middle east.  Pomwonderful grows their 
own in California and presses it themselves.  They do not use foreign 
concentrates and are apparently committed to controlling all aspects from 
"tree to bottle".  Didn't think about heat treating in the process of making 
molasses and how it would change the finished product.  I really should 
have.  Publix is locally ordering Old Orchard for me.  Now I'm thinking that 
I might switch to Pomwonderful even at the price.  Side note after drinking 
8 ounces every evening I find that mixing it with either white rum or gin 
improves the taste substantially.
