POM Cranberry Sauce

Print

Juice from 2-3 large POM Wonderful Pomegranates,* or 1 cup POM Wonderful 100% Pomegranate Juice
1/3 cup arils from 1 large POM Wonderful Pomegranate
1 cup water
1¼ cups dried cranberries
2/3 cup sugar
2 teaspoons shredded orange peel
1 tablespoon cornstarch

1. Score 1 fresh pomegranate and place in a bowl of water. Break open the pomegranate underwater to free the arils (seed sacs). The arils will sink to the bottom of the bowl and the membrane will float to the top. Sieve and put the arils in a separate bowl. Reserve 1/3 cup of the arils from fruit and set aside. (Refrigerate or freeze remaining arils for another use.)

2. Prepare fresh pomegranate juice.*

3. In a medium saucepan combine the juice, water, cranberries, sugar, orange peel and cornstarch.

4. Bring mixture to a boil; reduce heat and simmer, uncovered, for 10 minutes, stirring frequently. (If a thicker sauce is desired, simmer 10 minutes more.)

5. Remove from heat; stir in reserved arils. Cool 15 minutes; if not using right away, place in a tightly covered container and refrigerate for up to 1 week.

*For 1 cup of juice, cut 2-3 large POM Wonderful Pomegranates in half and juice them with a citrus reamer or juicer. Pour mixture through a cheesecloth-lined strainer or sieve. Set the juice aside.
