  • 2 cups pomegranate juice
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 12 ounces fresh cranberries
  • 1 medium crisp apple, peeled, cored, diced
  • 1 cup pomegranate arils seeds
  • 1 teaspoons orange zest
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh mint


  • Simmer the pomegranate juice and sugar until it reduces to less than half, and a thin syrupy consistency is reached, about 15-20 minutes. (Thin like pure maple syrup.)
  • Meanwhile, using a food processor, coarsely chop the cranberries.
  • Pour them into a medium bowl and add the pomegranate syrup. It’s ok if the syrup is still warm.
  • Add the diced apple, pomegranate arils, orange zest, salt, and mint. Mix well. Eat right away or chill for up to a week.
