Recipe Description:

Pomegranates were domesticated in their native Iran as early as 7000 years ago, so you can count on Persian chefs to know a thing or two about the fruit! We’ve combined juicy fresh pomegranate with its molasses, a slow evaporation of sour pomegranate juice that develops a rich caramel sweetness. A key ingredient in Iranian duck stew fesenjan. We’ve mixed it with honey, creating a sweet, tart glaze to cut through duck breast’s tender umami. The accompanying carrots are sweetly scented with star anise— not often found outside China, except along the coastal spice route in South India and Iran, where it is known as badian.
