This morning, rummaging through the fruit bowl for a healthy work snack, I spotted the two pomegranates purchased over the weekend and resolved to incorporate them into our Thanksgiving meal.
After some Googling, I found this recipe and decided I could knock this out tonight - two days before T-time - and give myself a little jump start.
The recipe calls for cinnamon sticks and ground cloves. Unfortunately, I had ground cinnamon and whole cloves. So I used what I had, and it looks pretty good. Still a bit too bubbly to taste, and since the recipe calls for refrigerating 'at least 8 hours', I figure I'll wait.
Though I don't know how it tastes, I'm delighted it has the house smelling like the holidays!
Here's my run-down. It took less than 20 minutes start to finish.
#1 Throw cranberries, orange juice, orange zest, sugar, cloves and cinnamon into sauce pan and get it bubbling like so.
#2 While sauce is bubbling, de-seed a pomegranate.
#3 Add pomegranate seeds to bubbling cranberry-orange juice sauce.
