Homemade Pomegranate Syrup

I'm sharing yet another new recipe.  I had already written this recipe down on a recipe card, so once again, I have no idea where I obtained it.  I'm sure I've had it in my recipe pile for over 6 years or so.

I'm sharing because there are days when I am hankering for pancakes for waffles and have no syrup on hand.


You make this by using pomegranate juice and honey:


Mix 1 cup of pomegranate juice with 2 Tablespoons of honey.  Bring to a boil, then reduce temperature to medium.  Simmer mixture until it reduces to syrup - approximately 15 minutes.  Remove from heat and let cool.


I found this to thicken up better after placing in the refrigerator overnight (before using).

The taste? 

Absolutely delicious.  I used it on homemade blueberry, whole wheat pancakes.   I'll be sure to make this ahead of the weekends, when we are more prone to bake up a larger breakfast.

Curious, but I have been making pancakes a little more frequently than usual lately. Also hankering for waffles, but still have to drag out my old (I'll bet 50 years old since I got it for Christmas one year) waffle iron to do that. Your new "syrup" sounds good, but there are many folks who tap the trees and make maple syrup around our area and I'm lucky enough to have some to serve over our pancakes. Or waffles. Hmmm, should I make waffles for breakfast this morning?

I would love to have trees to tap here. Yes, you must have pancakes for breakfast, ha ha!

I have discovered pomegranate molasses recently - this sounds like another way to enjoy this delicious fruit!

Kristina said...

Susan, pomegranate molasses sounds wonderful!

Yum. Can I can this?

Kristina said...

Michelle, I'm not certain if it can be safely canned or not.

Prayers everyone has a great, safe week.

RB, I also thought it might taste good to sweeten iced tea with. Ice cream sounds better, ha ha!
