Are you looking for a way to quickly use up the pomegranates in your kitchen? This super simple pomegranate syrup recipe is easy to make and tasty too!
Raise your hand if you love pomegranates! I know, I know. De-seeding pomegranates is a huge pain. However, once you get it down, it goes pretty quick.
This year, we started playing around more with pomegranates in the kitchen. We came up with a super tasty Pomegranate Apple Pie Crumble recipe that you're sure to love.
Then, we used the leftover pomegranate arils we had to make pomegranate syrup. It's super easy to make too! All you need are three simple ingredients, a blender and a pan.
While most recipes call for you to juice the pomegranate seeds, I decided to blend up the arils in my Blendtec blender. I didn't want to lose any of the health benefits by straining the seeds and I also wanted to save time.
You can definitely taste the flavor of the seeds in this pomegranate syrup, but it doesn't detract from the sweetness.
This pomegranate syrup is great over pancakes, waffles, ice cream, crepes or anything else that a tasty fruit syrup pairs well with!
Super Simple Pomegranate Syrup Recipe
- 4 cups pomegranate arils
- 1 cup organic cane sugar
- 1½ tablespoons fresh squeezed lemon juice
- Place the pomegranate arils into a Blendtec blender (or other high powered blender) and turn on Juice mode. If you're not using a Blendtec, blend on high until the pomegranate arils are juiced and the seeds are pulverized.
- Pour into a stainless steel sauce pan and add lemon juice and cane sugar.
- Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low.
- Cook until the mixture starts to thicken and reduces by about half.
- Transfer to mason jars or other glass jars and allow to cool until just warm. Then move the jars to the refrigerator.
- Use within a month or so to prevent spoilage.
