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.

Berry-Pom Sorbet

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

Wow that looks delicious. I am always trying to incorporate fruit into my diet and this is a perfect way. I might try to mix up the different kinds of berries used.

Hi Linda,
I don’t have much of a recipe for pomegranite, but my favorite drink contains pomegranite/cranberry juice. It’s great on a hot summer’s day.
In a 16 oz glass place 1 shot of coconut rum (Parrot Bay is delicious), fill the glass with pomegranite/cranberry juice, ice and stir.
It’s hard to drink this slowly. It’s better than Kool-aid!
