About this recipe:I created this the other day after being sent a sample of pomegranate molasses and wanted to use its sweet and sour flavours in something cooked, so I could see whether the molasses tasted good, or not. It got the family seal of approval so it cannot be too bad! Finding simple family food is great as it makes cooking from scratch easy and satisfying as children will eat these sort of meals without fuss and complaint - every parent's dream.
Prepare all the barbecue sauce ingredients and mix together thoroughly.
Pour the pomegranate barbecue sauce over the chicken drumsticks and leave to marinate for at least 30 minutes in the fridge.
Preheat the oven to 180 C / Gas 4.
Bake the marinated chicken drumsticks for about 30 minutes in the oven, until crisp and cooked right through. Enjoy immediately with potatoes and vegetables or a salad.
If using to cook on a barbecue proper, mop the pomegranate barbecue sauce over the meat in the last 30 minutes of the cooking time. If you add it on any earlier, the flavours will be overpowered by the barbecue aromas and the tomato and sugars will go beyond caramelisation and burn to black cinders.
