Ingredients

  • 1

    cup water

  • 1

    organic pomegranate

  • 2

    TB and 2 tsp organic dried elderberries

  • 2

    organic clove buds

  • 1

    organic cinnamon stick

  • zest of an organic orange and just half its juice

  • 1

    TB grassfed gelatin

  • 1

    TB raw organic honey

Directions

Remove the pomegranate arils. I just slice it open and remove the arils in a bowl of cold water. The pith floats to the top. Discard the pith and drain the water. In a medium saucepan over medium heat, bring the arils, elderberries, cinnamon stick, cloves, zest, and juice to a simmer. Let it cook for 10-15 minutes. Remove the saucepan from heat. Pour the mixture into a colander and strain the liquid. Using a potato masher get as much juice as you can from the berries and arils. **Discard the arils and berries if you want, I stored them in the fridge and sprinkled them on my salads until they were gone. Delish! Whisk in the gelatin until dissolved. At this point I'd recommend grabbing a candy thermometer. Check the liquid's temperature. Once the mixture drops below 115° F, you may stir in the raw honey. Adding raw honey to a hot mixture can compromise the raw honey’s pollens or enzymes - a.k.a. the benefits! Pour into an 8x8 casserole and chill in the fridge until set. Either slice into squares or cut into fun shapes with cookie cutters.
