pom wonderful give-away
The lovely people at Pom Wonderful sent me a case of 8-ounce bottles of their wonderful Pom Wonderful juice and I want to share them with you. The first 3 people to comment and leave a recipe using pomegranate juice will receive 2 of those 8-ounce bottles. Mind you, it will not count if you use a recipe already posted here by me! If you use an already published recipe from a cookbook, website, or magazine – that is fine, just be sure to credit where ever you are using it from. To get you going… here is a little recipe from me to you.
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup Pom Wonderful pomegranate juice
Two 16-ounce packages frozen mixed berries
1/4 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
In a medium saucepan over high heat, combine the sugar and pomegranate juice. Cook, stirring, until the sugar has dissolved, about 3 minutes. Transfer mixture to a medium bowl and set that bowl in a larger bowl that is about 1/2 full of ice and a little water. Stir occasionally until mixture is cooled, this is called an “ice bath”.
In a blender, purée the frozen mixed berries with the cooled pomegranate syrup and lemon juice until very smooth, strain through a fine-mesh sieve to remove as many of the berry seeds as possible. *See note below
Pour into an ice cream maker and process according to manufacturer’s directions.
Remove sorbet from ice cream maker and place into a bowl, cover and freeze until firm, then enjoy!
*Note: I own a Vita-Mix blender, which purées just all about all the seeds, you may have more seeds left in your strainer if you have a standard blender.
Makes about 1 quart
