Sweet/tangy pomegranate is combined perfectly with orange juice, onions, and other natural ingredients to provide a vibrant, Mediterranean-inspired sauce. The pomegranate, once considered a rare & exotic ingredient, is now found everywhere. It has its origins in the area of Iran to northern India, and spread throughout the Mediterranean region. Ancient writings and drawings about the fruit have been found both in Northern Africa and the Far East – A large, dry pomegranate was found in the tomb of the butler of Queen Hatshepsut in Egypt (circa 1500 BC – courtesy of Wikipedia).
This sauce is perfect for poultry and pork, either added at the end of cooking or as a glaze while cooking – think “Up-scaled BBQ sauce”. Our pomegranate sauce is a wonderful way to complement your dishes with its sweet/tart freshness – try it on beef ribs, or experiment with desserts. Have some fun – pour it over cheesecake, rice pudding, or ice cream.
