I use Cortas Pomegranate juice which is very thick like molasses but no sugar is added in the cooking of it. It's just concentrated Pomegranate juice. I purchased it in a Greek store but also seen it on line. It gives the lamb a slightly sweet tangy taste.

Oh, ~Rita~, this is a winner. I've always loved garlic and rosemary with lamb, and the pomegranate just really added a lovely layer of sweet and tart hiding just below the surface. I couldn't get the particular pomegranate juice you recommended, so I made a reduction of some regular Pom juice. I think next time, I might try it with a pomegranate cherry blend. It struck me as tasty. Thanks so much for sharing this.
