HOMEMADE GRENADINE SYRUP



RECIPE FOR HOMEMADE GRENADINE SYRUP:

INGREDIENTS :

1) 400 Gms of Pomegranate Arils or store bought Pomegranate Juice
2) 1 Medium sized Beetroot, skinned and roughly chopped
3) Sugar
4) 200 ml Water
5) Rose, Strawberry or Raspberry Essence. I used rose essence.

THIS IS HOW YOU DO IT:

1) Boil the beetroots covered with water till fully cooked. Strain the water into a bowl after beetroots are completely cooked. Use the boiled beetroots in any dish. Keep the water aside.

2) In a pan add the pomegranate arils or pomegranate juice and the strained water from the beetroot juice. Bring to a rolling boil and simmer over medium heat for 10-15 minutes.
Note : We add the beetroot water for natural red colouring.

3) Mash the cooked pomegranate arils with a potato masher. Strain. Now weigh the strained liquid. Transfer the strained liquid into a pan. Mix equal amount of sugar as the weight of the liquid. Bring the contents of the pan to a boil and then simmer on medium heat for at least 10 minutes or a little more till the liquid thickens.

Add a few drops of strawberry, raspberry or rose extract. Set aside to bring the liquid to room temperature. The liquid would have thickened. Your grenadine syrup is ready. Refrigerate and use the syrup cold.
