Pomegranate Juice is the unsweetened juice of Pomegranates.
You cut the pomegranates in half and juice as you would a citrus fruit. To juice the seeds, whiz them in a blender until the juice is released, then strain.
It will stain most plastic containers it’s stored in.
You may wish to vary the taste by making a cordial: to 1 cup (8 oz / 250 ml) pomegranate juice, add 3 tablespoons of lemon juice and 1/2 teaspoon of Orange Blossom Water, and sweeten to taste with up to 2 tbsp of sugar.
Store in fridge for up to a week; serve 4 tbsp per glass, topped up with carbonated water or sparkling mineral water.
1 medium-sized pomegranate = 1/2 cup pomegranate juice
Store freshly-squeezed Pomegranate Juice in refrigerator and use within 2 to 3 days; or freeze for up to 6 months.
