Bottled pomegranate juice is available at many specialty stores and supermarkets. To make your own, place pomegranate seeds in a blender and pulse gently to just break the juice sacks, but not enough to pulverize the seed pits. Pour into a strainer set over a bowl and press the mixture with the back of a spoon to extract as much juice as possible; discard the pits. Four medium, ripe pomegranates should yield about 1-1/2 cups juice plus 1/2 cup seeds.
Recipe Ingredient Details:
