Pomegranate Syrup (Grenadine)

Pomegranate Syrup (Grenadine)

2 large pomegranates, seeded, about 2 cups seeds
1 1/2 cups sugar

Combine seeds and sugar in a non-aluminum saucepan; stir to mix, crushing well, until you have a wet mass. Cover and let stand 12 to 24 hours. Bring to a boil over moderate heat, stirring constantly. Lower heat and simmer 2 minutes. Strain out seeds, pressing down to extract juice. Pour into a hot sterilized jar. Cover with a piece of cloth or a clean towel until cooled. Cap tightly and refrigerate. Makes about 2 cups.
