Pomegranate Juice

I’ve seen lots of awesome pomegranate recipes as my favorite fruit appears for the season. I love pomegranates. I don’t love destroying my clothes by eating them, but I’m willing to make a few sacrifices.
I’ve had three pomegranates in the fridge for a few weeks, and had a craving to do something with them.
Similarly, I had a craving to use my new food processor.
If you hadn’t already read the title, I’m sure you could probably read where this was going. If not, well, I made some lovely pomegranate juice. No additional anything added.
First, seed the pomegranates.
Want to see them again? They’re so lovely. And so tasty.
Toss the seeds (juice pouches) into a food processor.
I love my food processor. It makes my day.
Process until smooth.
Press through a cheesecloth or a strainer.
You get….
About half a glass of juice.
Half a glass!!!?!?!
After all that work?
It was really good juice. But now I have a solid understanding for why pomegranate juice is so spendy.
See how delicious and frothy it is? 
I had to make it last.
So I added Sprite to turn it into two servings.
Enjoy my Pomegranate Juice

    I love pomegranates…but I actually use one of those reamer-type hand juicers over a jar…which is probably way messier and way harder, LOL! I got about 12 oz. juice from one pom! I like mixing it w/ gingerale…I bet sprite is pretty close 😀 Now I need some!

    It’s wonderful to be able to make your own juice, but don’t spend the Christmas bonus all in one place :-). I admire all cooks who work at avoiding waste. You’ve done that here. Kudos. Have a great day. Blessings…Mary
