I love having a houseful of people willing to be experimented on! My in-laws were in town this weekend and unlike the husband they appreciate my food ideas. :) This was the second experiment I tried out on them, I’ll post the other one later this week.
The first idea is a simple sauce. The great people over at POM sent me a case of Pomegranate Juice. I was totally psyched as I LOVE pomegranates and totally miss them when there are out of season. The juice, albeit not the same, is a great way to get that pom fix. Today I used just a bit to make a simple sauce for my pancakes. You can totally use it on anything, really. I’m thinking a little Breyer’s Free with this topping with be summer go to. :~)
- 1/4 cup (2 oz) of 100% pomegranate juice
- 1 tbsp low sugar strawberry jelly
- 1/4 cup blueberries
- 1/2 tbsp whole wheat flour
Put all ingredients in a small pot and whisk over medium high heat. Bring to a boil. The sauce will thicken. Lower to a simmer until ready to use. If the sauce becomes too thick whisk in a splash of water.
The nutritional info is a bit tough as the amount will vary based on how much water you add an how thick you like it. I was able to get at least 4 tbsp so I’ll base it on that.
