We were on our way to get some pomegranates. I saw This Recipe at least nine months ago, and have been waiting until there were pomegranates at the store, so that I could make it, and you know what? It was worth the wait. I have fond childhood memories of eating pomegranate seeds with my sister, as we sat on the fence overlooking the pig pen. Pomegranate seeds are extremely flavorful and tart, and they burst in your mouth when you eat them. They are also very good for you...here are 11 reasons why they are good for you. So go get some, and make this delicious dish!
Pomegranate and Strawberry Dessert
1 cup Pomegranate juice
2 cups half & half
1 lb pkg fresh strawberries, hulled
1/4 cup OJ concentrate
1/2 cup sour cream
4 Tablespoons granulated sugar
4 fresh mint leaves, chopped
Mix everything in a blender until it is thoroughly processed. Chill in the refrigerator for at least two hours before serving. Pour into small bowls, garnish with a mint leaf and pomegranate arils, and serve as a chilled soup.
NOTE: If you go to the site where I got the Original Recipe, she shows a great video that helps you "de-seed" your pomegranate. Also, I bought a small (2 cup) container of pomegranate juice (POM) found in the refrigerated section of your grocery store, where the other juices are. I found that was much easier than trying to juice the pomegranate. Plus, I didn't buy enough pomegranates to get enough juice from. That being said, you can make this any time of year, by using the POM juice, as long as you don't mind the lack of arils to garnish.
