Step 1: In a skillet over medium heat add the cardamom pods and cook for 3-5 minutes or until browned; cool slightly and then crack the pods and remove seeds. Crush the seeds using a mortar and pestle or in spice mill; set aside.
Step 2: Bring a saucepan with water to a boil and then add the bacon and cook for under one minute; drain. Combine bacon and chicken broth in saucepan and bring to a broil; reduce heat to medium-low and simmer for 30-40 minutes or until liquid is almost all absorbed. Discard grease and then add the pomegranate molasses and then the pine nuts, pomegranate seeds and crushed cardamom and bring to a simmer, cooking until heated though (under 5 minutes). Season with pepper.
