I've never made this before so I had to buy everything for it. I found the pomegranate molasses at Wholefoods. I made it as listed and then added more chili (a dash or two.) It probably needs to double the chili to balance the sweetness. Also, it made more like 2/3 of a cup rather than 1.5 cups. Next time I will double it.

Loved it! Didn't have pomegranate molasses, so substituted with 2 tablespoons of %100 pomegranate juice and 2 tablespoons of brown sugar. Sweet and worked really well with the red peppers.
