Homemade Grenadine Syrup

 
 
 
 
 


Article from Pomegranate Council 2007

Pomegranates are now being featured as one of the hot new "super foods" that both tastes good and is good for you. Nutritional research confirms that pomegranates contain mineral e.g. calcium, potassium, and iron, plus compounds known as phytonutrients, that help the body protect against heart disease, diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis and cancer. The powerful antioxidants in the fruit also help retard aging and can neutralize almost twice as many free radicals as red wine and seven times as many as green tea. As a further benefit, some researchers suggest that the crunchy seeds help flush fats from the digestive tract.


Homemade Grenadine Syrup

1 kg pomegranates
1 pint water
Sugar
Red food coloring, optional


Separate the pomegranate seeds from the membranes and skin. In a heavy saucepan, cover pomegranate seeds with 1 pint of water and simmer, stirring until juice sacs release their juice, about 5 minutes.

Pour through a cheesecloth-layered sieve into a bowl, pressing the juice from the seeds. Discard seeds.

Measure the strained pomegranate juice and add an equal amount of sugar. Pour into saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 10 to 15 minutes. Cool to room temperature. Add food coloring, if using. Pour into a decorative stoppered bottle.


Hajar -- rasa dia masam-masam manis....sedap atas vanilla ice-cream or trifle. Kalau Hajar dekat, boleh Muna kasi sebotol.

Zaza -- impossible to slow down when it's down to food...I don't get fat by accident, you know.....
