Pomegranates are known as the jewel of winter. They are in season now, but they won’t be for long. I love POM Wonderful 100% juice all year round. To make POM Wonderful pomegranates are whole-pressed, meaning a unique blend of polyphenol antioxidants from two whole pomegranates – including its fruit, pith and rind.
The syrup in this recipe is delicious on pancakes, waffles, mixed in yogurt or in a cocktail. It’s Friday so I’m going with a cocktail on this one!
