  2. Dear Baroness Tapuzina,

    Many thanks for linking to my blog. I highly appreciate it.

    Thanks for your question about (Dibas Roman)which is called in English (Pomegranate molasses).It is a thick syrup made from boiling down pomegranate juice. Very sweet and sour tasting. I added a new post about it.
