A little while ago, I was given some Pom Wonderful juice… I asked a few fellow foodies what to make with it and here are some of their ideas:
freeze and use as ice cubes in ginger ale
pomegranate cocktails- from cosmos to mojitos
reduce and make a sauce (hmmm….wheels turning)
So far I have not made cocktails. But, I have made a yummy reduction sauce for steaks and an awesome vinaigrette (posts coming soon) and this tart came from the inspiration of that wonderful juice. If you have never tried it- it’s really wonderful (no pun intended) Now, for the tart:
such a pretty thing… I love pink and yellow together.
for the crust: ( the crust is a modified version of one found in a good housekeeping cookbook)
3/4 cup unsweetened coconut
6tbs frozen grated butter
4 tbs sugar
1 egg yolk
1 tsp vanilla
gently combine until the mixture is crumbly but holds together. Like this:
now, get out a 10″ tart pan. A pie pan would probally work, too.
go ahead and dump it in!
press it down and up the sides- then prick it in a bunch of places with a fork
cover with foil and bake at 350 for 10min- uncover and bake another 10 min.
now the filling- well this is kind of like a key lime pie here, except lemon and with egg whites too- here goes:
mix together 1 can sweetened condensed milk
1/2 cup fresh lemon juice
2 egg yolks (set whites aside)
1 tbs vanilla
1/3 c sugar
now mix all that together, and those egg whites? Whip them until they are stiff with 3 tbs sugar.
you wil have 2 bowls that look like this
bake at 350 for 15-20 min or until its not jiggly in the center
you will have to forgive me for this- I don’t have exact measurements- I put some Pom Wonderful in a zip top bag and some powdered sugar- maybe 4tbs of juice and 1c sugar? Forgive me! I mixed and added sugar/juice until I achieved the right consistency, like thick icing. You can drink the extra juice, or make a cocktail, or save it for m other posts using the juice- the salad dressing is good…mmmm!
drizzle it over your cooled tart….
and grab a slice- the lemony-coconutty-pomegranate flavors are like a polynesian island in your mouth-mmmmm!
