Pomegranate Infused Balsamic Vinegar Reduction
Light and sweet with the dry, fruity-floral notes that make pomegranate so compelling. This is the taste of Summer - light and airy - its deliciously pink!
Made for light Summer salads with fruit and edible flowers: pomegranate jewels, cubes of grapefruit jelly, bites of prickly pear, shredded rose petals, mint and flaked almonds... OR choose the juiciest, freshest salad greens - a good mixture of leaves works well (baby spinach, sweet rocket or lamb's lettuce, mustard cress and fancy lettuce) - add walnuts, pomegranate jewels and cubes of mild goats cheese (any mild white cheese will work). Thin batons of new season beetroot will add interest - as will apple crisps, slices of cucumber, some sprouts of cress or micro-basil.
Pomegranate goes well with lamb - particularly with middle Eastern/North African flavours - as well as pork or chicken: add a little splash or two to the sauce or gravy (more if it still tastes 'heavy') - it will 'open' the meaty taste and elevate the flavour to new levels of deliciousness!
