POM was so kind to send me some coupons for free POM juice and I was excited to use the juice in a way that I hadn’t before. I frequently use POM juice when I make cocktails…but I have never used POM in a recipe for food. I decided to make a sweet pomegranate reduction and serve it over warm brie with crusty baguettes….ohh my gosh, was this ever good! The gooey salty brie, and the sweet pomegranate were such a good combination!! I served it with with a cheese platter when I had my friends over for dinner. They loved it!

Pomegranate Reduction (adapted from here)

I used this over a nice brie cheese, but I’m sure it would taste great over other cheeses. This recipe makes a lot of syrup! Keep it in the fridge and find a use for it :p

  • Brie cheese, however much you like, warmed in the oven… 350F for 10-15 minutes or so.
  • 1 1/2 cups POM 100% pomegranate juice (You could use their other flavours but I like the plain pomegranate!)
  • 2-3 tbsp raspberry jam
  • 1/2 balsamic vinegar
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar

Combine juice, jam, and balsamic vinegar in a saucepan and heat to a simmer. Add sugar and heat until desired thickness is reached….I left mine on the stove for about 40 minutes lol it was pretty thick!

Heat brie up in the oven and drizzle with reduction. Serve with crackers or bread….yum!

Stay tuned for a Thirsty Thursday recipe of my go-to martini using POM!
