"I love this zesty and sweet molasses, when there is plenty of pomegranates in season, it is a good idea to batch cook and freeze it. I created this as my Christmas pudding recipe, however i now put it with all my cakes as a wonderful side. I love it with chocolate and almond orange. Because of the sweetness of the pomegranates you don't need any syrup or sugar to sweeten it so its a great alternative. You can even put warm over some dairy free ice-cream! Pomegranates have been labelled a superfood because of their high levels of anti-oxidants which help to boost the immune system so great to help ward off those common colds." Tash x
1 large pomegranate
2 tbsp water
- Pop the seeds out by holding the pomegranate in your hand with the cut side facing your palm, then with a wooden spoon bang the top (round side) and the pips will fall out into your palm. Make sure you do this over a bowl and they will fall into the bowl without the white pith.
- Put all ingredients into a pan and leave to cook on a low / medium heat for 10 minutes. The pomegranate will start to soften and become a thick liquid.
- Take off the heat and use to pour over puddings or breakfasts.
